Driving through Spain

I may be driving from France through Spain to Portugal in August. Does anyone know of a "safe" route - ie. not likely to get robbed, mugged, etc.! Have heard some horror stories, but haven't done that route by car in years, well, decades!

We spent some time in Spain in a motorhome and heard all kinds of stories about people being robbed at gunpoint. I don't know how many of them were true because it was always 'a friend of a friend', but apparently they all happened on the motorways around Barcelona. We didn't have any problems in the north, south-west, or driving across from Portugal to France - we left Portugal just north of Guarda and followed the main non-toll roads until we got to Donestia.

I did the trip last month in a motorhome last month with no problems at all. I stayed on motorways/main toll routes. I'll try and find the route for you

We have just completed an 11000km round trip from Portugal through Spain,France,Italy,Greece,turkey and Cyprus and back to Portugal using mainly the e80 route, no problems whatsoever apart from high toll costs in Italy, plenty of nice stops on the way and never felt threatened at any time.
