Additional comments I was surprised when I came out to Spain to live at just how high the crime rate was. I had grown up on Ibiza where the crime rate was very low. I had not expected the high rate of burglaries, or the crimes against the person that occur with car deception offences. I have had my bag/purse stolen 3 times in 7 years, far more than in the UK!
