I am 30 and married but am coming to barcelona solo towards the end of nov and trying to decide on a place to stay. I was thinking of la ramblas but i feel it might be unsafe for me. Then i looked into Eixample because it seems to be closest to all the Gaudi stuf i want to see. I am coming to see mostly the Gaudi, picasso and dali stuff. I also want to take day trips out of barcelona. perhaps figueres. Can anyone recommend an area or place to stay for a week? thank you so much for any help you can give.
