Current situation in Barcelona

Hye,
I am travelling to barcelona with my friends this november. But because of the recent political tension in Barcelona now, is it safe to travel to that city? should we carry on with the travel plan or cancel it. Appreciate any advice.

Thank You.

Frank Brehany, a travel consumer rights commentator, says that tourists should carry on with travel plans but remain vigilant. He said: “Whatever the rights or wrongs of the Catalonia vote, it is clear that strikes and protests are going to form a part of everyday activity. Most Catalonians are supportive of their tourist industry and so at this time I would advise that you should continue with your travel plans but maintain a continued assessment of the situation.

nada,

This recent topic about the referendum has some comments which may be useful to you, have a look.

Personally, I wouldn't worry much about traveling there, if I had the need to do so.
