Hi, We've just booked some flights to Barcelona and arrive on September 11th. I've read that it's a public holiday that day and they often have political demonstrations and that a lot of things shut early.
Our flight arrives at 20.15 so it will be quite late by the time we get there. We haven't booked any hotels yet so should we just stay somewhere near the airport on the first night and avoid the centre of Barcelona or will we still be able to get to the centre of Barcelona ok and if so is it advisable to stay in the centre of Barcelona on the 11th?
Or am I worrying about nothing?!
