Sorry, no festivals here.
Being bored in Barcelona, Spain, is sort of like seeing a prairie dog riding through the Pacific Ocean on the back of a dolphin. It’s unlikely. There are so many things to do in Barcelona. Energize yourself with a few tapas before rambling through Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic). And don’t forget to stop at Park Güell prior to the party. What party? The festival you need to make time for, of course. What festival? You choose—there are plenty of festivals in Barcelona. Les Festes de La Mercè provides a profusion of Spanish culture, and Sónar Barcelona boasts a bill full of world-class electronic musicians. And that’s just a taste—sort of like a few tapas. So whether you’re into food, music, dancing or art, you can count on Barcelona festivals to bring it.
