Barcelonans know shops are closed on Sunday, and many on Saturday afternoon as well. They know that the freshest produce is to be had at open markets and greengrocers, not supermarkets. They’ll also suggest eating out in the middle of the day on a fixed-price menu. It’s way cheaper than whipping out your credit card for à la carte evenings. They’ll tell you never to stumble around acting drunk, even if you are, or lay down a valuable object in public; it's an easy way to get robbed. And one last word to the wise: For the city’s biggest attractions, reservations—always.
