Reply To: Crime in Spain


Barcelona has always had a bad reputation for tourist crime. I have heard of many in Banus too. Golf courses around here have been taking a lot of hits recently.
Local newspapers do seem to report more incidents than before. They do say that a lot of tourist crime goes unreported although I was once in the consulate here and it was full of people who had lost everything, passports etc.

On a personal level I feel safe where I live, more so than the UK. perhaps it’s just my perception.

Just saw this, Calahonda has it’s fair share of incidents
