We've been waiting all year for Gràcia's celebrations!
In Barcelona we know it's summer because the heat brings everyone to the beach, and also because of this big festival to take place in Gràcia. This event is probably the most famous block party in Catalonia. Celebrations of Gràcia will be inaugurated next 15th August with a speech by Isma Prados and will continue for seven intense days with exhibitions, contests, concerts, workshops, activities for childrens, parades, theater plays... All this in the streets! It is recommended to get a map of the area and walk through all the narrow streets and small squares of one of the most beautiful quarters of Barcelona. Every corner is decorated each year with props that residents have been preparing for months, but only one of the streets will be the winner of this year. Official Website Where: Gràcia's Quarter (Barcelona) When: 15 to August 21, 2011 How much: Free! Check out the Hostal Mare Nostrum offers. Sleeping in the center of Barcelona at a great price is possible. We wait for you!
