Experience Barcelona from one fiesta to another one during this August

August 12th, 2019

We have to insist, the best way to get to know a city and all its culture, tradition and gastronomy is through the popular fiestas of its neighborhood.

Let’s start with Gràcia

The streets of the friendly neighborhood of Gràcia, in Barcelona, are already in their maximum peak. Not only because all the activities that we can enjoy during day and night, but also because of the most typical characteristic of this fiesta: the multi-coloured costumes with which the neighbours dress the streets. Every year, the streets of the neighborhood compete for being the most original one in decoration. Thanks to the perfection of years and the passion of the people who participate, the streets become pieces of work of art.

Continuing on Sants

If you are not going to be in Gràcia during these dates, don’t lose hope. Starting at 18th of August, the magic will continue in the neighborhood of Sants. Again, you are going to be able to enjoy the variety of the traditional activities celebrated during day and the music of the concerts during night. And, again, you will be able to see the work of art made by the neighbors in the streets.

And don’t miss to stop in the Gòtic

This 14th of August, the oldest fiestas of Barcelona are going to start, the fiestas of Sant Roc. And they are not only the oldest fiestas, the streets of this symbolic neighborhood in the center of Barcelona are very antiques too. Walking through the streets of the Gòtic, any day of the year, is going to fill you of history, imagine doing that during a popular fiesta.

Please, remember that these fiestas are very special thanks to the effort of all the local people who participate, so, try to help keeping this tradition by the respect and the living together.

This August the only thing that we are going to miss in Barcelona is the boredom 😉

Sants, another one of the neighborhoods with the best atmosphere among the neighbors in Barcelona, replaces the fiestas of the la Vila de Gràcia and adorns its streets from the 20th to the 28th of August.

If your holidays haven’t coincided with the fiestas of Gràcia that we announced last week, there’s no reason to worry. In August Barcelona keeps active and this week it’s the turn of the neighborhood of Sants.

Sants, within the district of Sants-Montjuïc, has been acknowledged during its entire history for its solidarity and the organization capacity of the people who live in it. This element is definitely not forgotten during these days of fiesta.

Activities for Young and elderly people, for families and friends, concerts, alternative fiestas, etc. The possibilities to enjoy these celebrations are practically infinite. You’ll surely find the ones that best fit your taste in order to enjoy the local people.

The neighborhood of Sants can be easily reached by bicycle from different parts of the city. For this reason, as always, and in order to avoid traffic jams, we advise you to get there by pedaling.

Enjoy your stay in Barcelona at one of its fiestas full of popular culture!
