Barcelona is really a great city that everyone can visit it at any time of the year. Some people know it as the capital of Catalonia in Spain and others like the city of Gaudi. Antoni Gaudi was the most important and famous Catalan architect, he is the one who build the Sagrada Familia, the one which was declared as a basilica after the visit of the Pope Benedict XVI on November 7, 2010.
I will say that the best month to visit it is in June or in September because you will avoid the high heat of the summer. Well, of course, it will depend about your plan. If you plan to go each day at the beach and doing no more than that, so the best will be to come in august because not only for the heat but also for one of the most famous summer festival called “festa de Gràcia” from 15 to 21 august in the Gràcia district. The month, I will advise against, is April because normally, it is the raining month.
Once you are in this city, what you can do ??? A lot of things, all depend of what you like. You can visit museums like Picasso, discover great architectures like the Catalan Music Palace, have great entertainments during its amazing nightlife, hiking in the most precious natural park like Montserrat, testifying the unbelievable human castle called “castells” during the Mercè festival celebrated in September and much more.
This is no way to get bored in Barcelona, each day of your vacation can be different because the city has 75 neighborhoods divided in 10 districts to discover. Each step that you walk on its streets should make your eyes open widely because not only this city is for walker, it has also different architectures in each block, some very simple and some very marvelous.
The bigger green section is located at Montjuic, a hill where there are a lot of parks, museums, an old castle and a cemetery dated from 1883. From the top, there is a great view on the city and on its harbor. At its foot, each Friday and Saturday, there is a magic fountain show at “plaza de carles buïgas”, a spectacle of light and water dancing in the rhythm of music.
Well the city is not only intellectual, it is also full of entertainment like the theme park located at the top of the mountain Tibidabo, the many night clubs and fashions restaurants at “passeig maritim de la barceloneta” street, just next to the 2 towers and the big golden fish, a work of Frank Owen Gehry but the area where I have more fun it is located on “maria cubi” street or in the born area.
In fact, if you are looking for more details, I will recommend to visit my website World RT because I write a lot of things about Barcelona so providing a lot of local information. The secret to prepare a great holiday depends of the information that we may find on internet and nowadays, there is no excuse to not plan it better. Of course, there are information and information, mine are Information with a big “I”.
