I have read the posted luggage hold questions, but the newest one seems to be over a year old and a replier mentions that some of the businesses may be closing. So, here are my questions. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
We are staying in an apartment in Barri Gotic, but are arriving at 9:30am and cannot access the apartment until 4:00pm. Are the NORD lockers the closest? Do they get broken into (thieves)? Is that the only option for storing luggage in that area?
Also, I live in New Orleans, which many consider to be incredibly dangerous, and as a local, I know how to be safe and I can go nearly anywhere without feeling threatened so long as I am aware of my surroundings. Is this the same case with Barcelona. One friend, who has been there, said that I should be fine, because I know how to deal with my city. Another said- forget that- they (the thieves) are brazen and will cut your bag open while it's on your back. Is it a matter of 'don't be naive and you'll be fine', or is it much worse?
