Fiestas de la Mercè
It is the great feast of Barcelona, in honor of its patron saint, the Virgin of La Mercè. Free concerts throughout the city, correfocs (if you do not know what it is, look at the program of the parties and do not miss it, I assure you that although initially scared a little, you will end up enjoying a great time .... And no we give more clues), an piromusical show finale that will make your skin crawl and many more plans that you can see in the program of the festivities.
If you are a student form part of the celebrations of the Merce, celebrated one of the most crowded races in the city, the famous "courses of Mercy". Put on your sneakers and go for it! It is also for a good cause. All your winnings will destinades to NGOs. Need more reasons?
If after the race, you think you can quietly relax and go to your university flat for the rest of the month, take off the idea of the head. We expect some of the best music festivals of the year:
From 18 to 23 held the BAM (Barcelona Accio Musical) Festival. Concerts in several parts of the city and the best, free and for all tastes.
And not forgetting Piknic Electronik: every Sunday until September 20 can enjoy live music in the park Motnjuïc. Live music, nature and activities to dismiss the summer.
And since there are events for all, on September 11 the National Day is celebrated one day with a great symbolism in which the Catalans go out massively to claim and remember the history of Catalonia. If you join the celebration, it will surprise the entire atmosphere,
As you can see, Barcelona in September is much more than the start of classes. Make the most of the City!
