Deputy Mayor Janet Sanz stressed that this practice was never prohibited in public swimming pools. Mugrons Lliures said some centres had put restrictions on bathing or in specific areas of the installation by internal regulations.
The recommendation, based on a legal report, makes no distinction about indoor or outdoor swimming pools. Mugrons Lliures, which had complained to the Ombudsman last year about the discrimination, said it was delighted at Barcelona's announcement and expects the norm to now apply across the country.

beaches near Barcelona - topless norm or exception? - Barcelona Forum - TripAdvisor
Nothing wrong barcelona topless sunbathing! Maybe try Sitges as a new eye opener for yourself!! It's an amazing place! Are there really no suggestions for beaches other than Sitges that may be more family-friendly and less adult? I don't consider myself puritanical, but I also don't expose my children to adults doing adult activities like drinking heavily, dancing intimately as they do in American bars.
And I simply do not believe that all European families are vacationing in places topless gay and straight couples are displaying affection. I'm just looking for information. I don't intend to get into arguments over the beauty index of pics naakt breasts.
It's simply a cultural norm, only an American one apparently. So Sitges is out, sounds a little too racy and adult. Any other suggestions for a quieter beach with restaurants but not too much adult partying? On most European barcelona topless women are the norm and no-one bats an eyelid, except apparantly Americans! I have been to Las Vegas and honestly didn't see one bare breast, all the "naughty bits" were covered up by bits of sticky tape, which to me makes it even more stupid.
Even the toy "flasher" dolls sold in shops there had underpants on, whereas here in Spain they are on open sale on the market showing everything. And, guess what, families even with impressionably aged children just take no notice women they walk past. It's only the "non puritanical" tourists who stop, stare and giggle or sneer in disgust. So perhaps Europe is not for topless. It would be nice, one day, to see questions answered on trip adviser women boards without judgment, and without statements like "Just stay in America " and " Europe is not for women.
When I read such posts addressed to others as well, it is what turns me off from trip adviser. Thankfully, Europe barcelona, in my experience, has been vastly more welcoming and friendly, than some trip topless experts.
We try to answer these posts as plain as possible, at least in most cases, buy you have to understand that there are some major differences between Americans, who are very Puritanical when it comes to the human body, and Europeans, who tend to be more open and accepting. Most Americans deny being Puritanical, but I'm sorry, it's a proven fact, not a fallacy. All of your saved places can be found here in My Trips.
