Thanks! :-)

Get a hop on hop off pass and go to Parc Güell. It's free and one of the best sights in the city with the hop on hop off you can criss cross all over the city and taking a lot of the free sites. go down to Barceloneta and sit on the beach and have a cocktail. You can spend a couple of hours having a couple of drinks and watching the world go by.if you walk around Barri Gòtic you will find several cheap places to eat tapas. just avoid La Rambla like the plague except for La Boqueria where you can walk around, have a juice, or some chocolates, or some cheap eats.

Hi Ja-Naé

I would still consider these:

Check Fragments Cafè if you love good tapas. But it is a bit pricier than budget... Better go to Bar Electricitat if you are tight...

I also suggest to go to Cosmo and have a Coffee there. Always some nice art around.

My favorite place to chill and drink a malty granissado is El Tío Che on the Rambla de Poblenou.

Want more ideas, check my ebook, its full of stuff: #BCN - by locals

No1 priority in Barcelona is security. No expensive watches or visible jewellery. Handbag strap across shoulder with access towards you. Do not loiter near metro stations. Will then be ok. The main tourist area is La Rambla. Runs from main square to the harbour. Food is expensive on the main street but cut down any of the side streets and the food is a lot cheaper. Eating outside is usually more expensive than inside in most cafe/restaurants. One good guide is look for where the locals eat. Best way to see Barcelona is on the city tour bus (hop on - hop off). The city is big.   Too big to walk as the must see sights are spread over a wide area. The bus covers them all. Best of luck
