You must head down to La Ramblas and check out the trileros. These are the guys who do the shell game for real money on the streets.

(watch your bag and don't play)

How far is Madrid from where you are?

I think aprox. 3 hours by train

Madrid and Barcelona are much further apart than just 3 hours. 8 hours would be much closer to the true time, but it was a long time ago so I can't remember the exact details.

Listen to Nicholas. I have been fortunate to do a lot of travelling in Europe over the past 15 years or so. Tourists are definite targets. Pickpockets and thieves are VERY prevelant in Barcelona (and much of Europe actually) especially around La Ramblas. Do not carry anything in your pockets that you would miss should it be taken. Use a money belt or body safe.
