Travelling solo in Barcelona is an awesome experience. I did it on my own around Europe a few years ago, I was a bit afraid I must say, but everything turn out better than I expected.
To be honest I’m a super organised girl. I need to feel that everything is under control some months ahead. Hotels, flights, itinerary, etc. So if your next trip includes my beloved Barcelona, for sure I can help you to get the most out of your trip. I think that having everything set will definitely make you feel more confident travelling solo to Barcelona.
There are definite benefits travelling solo in Barcelona.
You can do whatever you want, at your own pace. Want to spend a few hours in that gallery? Well, you can! Want to wake up late or super early? go ahead!
Barcelona is a super safe city so do not be afraid of walking on your own. Just be aware of pickpockets in crowded places such us metro & train stations. That’s it! Find here my advice regarding Where to Stay in Barcelona if you are travelling solo in Barcelona.

Don’t go home without having tried tapas! Try patatas bravas, ham, manchego cheese, longaniza and sea food. Also pintxos and vermut or cava. Oh! Paella as well!
5. Buy tickets in advance
There are only two attractions in Barcelona that need online reservation tickets in advance: Sagrada Familia & Park Güell. Two Gaudi gems! Do not go there without your tickets! Check this post about Park Güell if you want to plan your itinerary travelling solo in Barcelona.
