TOUR groups larger than 15 have been banned from Barcelona’s historic La Boqueria market in La Rambla on Friday and Saturday mornings, following complaints about overcrowding from stallholders, local shoppers, and residents.
In other moves – prompted by local protests –
to curb the negative impact of tourism, the
number of visitors allowed into Gaudi’s Park
Güell has been restricted to 800 a day.
