    Barcelona targets home rental websites to crack on 'uncontrolled' tourism

    Colau wants rental websites to hand over information on the property owners. “Everybody must comply with the same game rules,” Colau told media

    Barcelona's new mayor is picking a fight with home rental websites as she tries to crack down on uncontrolled tourism that she fears could drive out poor residents and spoil the Catalan capital's charm. Ada Colau is threatening to fine firms like Airbnb and Booking.com if they market apartments from tourists without a number showing that they are on the Catalan tourism register.
