How safe is Spain?

It depends on where you live or where you visit. In some parts though it’s better not to go alone at night as it’s not so safe. In the big cities there’s more people that steal. Besides everything I don’t think that it is the unsafest country you can visit and there’s a lot of nice people too

Spain is safe, but I would avoid walking alone in big cities. Otherwise, I would say it is a country with good security, and female travelers can feel comfortable. The people are friendly and always willing to help.

Family travel experience

was very safe!!! I definitely recommend all of the food not a single thing you get could be bad. Just go look around at all of the chapels and everything that is there!! There are not too many activities but there are many tours and things to see just by exploring which is so great. The living here is very different but beautiful to see!

Solo travel experience

I hiked the Camino Frances route across Spain this summer. It was a 550 miles trail from the French border to the Atlantic Ocean. I absolutely loved it! Every few miles there was an Albergue(cheap hostel) and centuries old village. You can embark the trail alone but never feel alone. If you are ever looking for a walk that is focused on self-reflection and spirituality set to a scenic Spanish country-side backdrop, this is for you.
