Level Of English Poor Few speak English

Prices Not too bad, about the same as UK.

Eating Out Quite good but like the UK, not cheap to eat out.

Courtesy Generally helpful and good natured. However, if you need information in the night, forget it.

Driving Little hectic but generally courteous. Good road system.


Public Transport - Not too good. Buses seem to not run that regularly and most finish early in the evening and don't start again until about 8.30 in the morning. Quite a good coastal rail service.

Places Of Interest/Attractions - Antoni Gaudi's architectural masterpiece, The Sagrada Famlia church is located here, along with Barcelona Cathedral and several other impressive buildings.

Other Remarks - When its closed in Spain, its closed. Even the airport shuts down at night. Buses and public transport dont run very late and do not start too early in the morning. This leaves the playing field wide open for the licensed bandits in the taxis. The ranks of taxis seem to go on for ever and they keep strictly to the first one is the only one available so you cannot even negotiate a price. Basically they will take most of your holiday money if you have more than a few kilometres to travel.
