Thanks to Robbed in Barcelona’s Nicki Easy for contacting local photographer sparmtacus and getting permission to reproduce his photos of the city.

It paints a sorry picture. Click on each image for an enlarged version.

    Oh yeah. Barcelona is literally littered with bicycle corpses. They are everywere, mutilated ramanents of once proud and envoirementally friendly vehicles.

    This is nothing! If your lawmakers there don’t do anything about these crimes (epidemic) tourists will stop coming to your city and when these perpetrators have no more tourist to victimize they will eventuallly turn to the locals, hopefully they victimize some police and politician and soon Barcelona will become a ghost town. This is what happens when you have a very lenient law against robbers or pick pocketers. Police should make no arrest but shoot to KILL the bad guys/girl right there and there when they catch them. Do that for awhile and I’m sure you’ll see a big decrease in crime. Your politician needs to get off their fat asses and do what they get paid to do! The local should rally in front of the city hall and demand to make changes to this law, until then nothing will change and you’ll see the same thing happen over and over and over…

    Unfortunately this is true. As a resident you soon learn what to look out for, but however many warnings you dish out to visitors there is always one or two who get caught out. Watch out for the “helpful” stranger!

    It’s quite sad but this city is completely spoilt by robberies. Some of them violent. Nice city though.

    Barcelona is a big city, do you know, whatever happens in all big cities in the world. Here are pickpockets because there are millions of tourists. The people of Barcelona do not you ever happen to walk by what street late at night, showing cameras, bags and jewelery. Join Barcelona, join Catalonia!
