Summer is heating with tremendous heat this year… Luckily in Barcelona, in addition to summer topics as beach and bar terraces, we have other attractions to spend the summer a little cooler. Enjoy these plans as they are exclusive for the summer!
We start with movies. But not in a movie theater, to go there we already have all year long.
From June 29 to August 3, fresh film sessions that we love so much each year are installed again in the cool grass of the Santa Eulàlia pit in the Montjuïc Castle. In this edition we can enjoy great titles that have played a lot during the last years such as Lion, Manchester Frente al Mar or Tres Anuncios en las Afueras, but also titles of all time such as Psicosis or West Side Story, among others. Check the full program here, you will not want to miss one!
And from the mountains to the beach, because there are also cool film sessions on the beach of Barceloneta, from June 28 to August 2, music, short film and film to spend a movie night in front of the sea. People that are not me or A fantastic woman are some of the films that you can enjoy. You can see the billboard at http://cinemalliure.com
Another classic of summer in Barcelona are the popular festivals of the neighborhoods. Some of the best known and most popular are the Gracia festivities, one of the favorite neighborhoods for international students.
In the Festa Major de Gràcia the streets of this Barcelona neighborhood are covered with artistic creations made with recycled materials that dress businesses, balconies and different corners with a mixture of colors and shapes.
The parties are celebrated from August 15 to 21, with a proclamation in the Plaza de la Vila one day before.
Discover the complete program on the official website of the Festa Major de Gràcia
We continue with music this time, in the parks of the city. As every summer comes a new edition of the event 'Music als Parcs' (Music in the parks). A series of outdoor concerts that take place throughout the summer in different parks of Barcelona. These have been carried out for 15 years and include music of the best quality. Not only that, it is also great to sit at night in a nice place with good music, friends and family. Ideal plan to enjoy an outdoor summer sunset while savoring the mix of sounds of nature and classical music. Consult the full program here.
