Barcelona is the capital and largest city of Catalonia, Spain. With its Rambles, Barcelona is ranked the most popular city to visit in Spain. It has a rich cultural heritage and an important cultural center and a major tourist destination. It was the 20th-most-visited city in the world by international visitors and the fifth most visited city in Europe, with 5.5 million international visitors in 2011. By 2015, both Prague and Milan had more international visitors.
Due to its large influx of tourists each year, Barcelona has to deal with pickpockets, with wallets and passports being commonly stolen items. For this reason, most travel guides recommend that visitors take precautions in order to ensure their possessions’ safety, especially inside the metro premises.
