With the arrival of summer, the month of August becomes an especially colourful time of the year that's full of entertaining activities to take part in Barcelona. In this article, we want to show you the best things to do during this month in Barcelona.
1. The Gràcia Festivals
The Gràcia neighbourhood festivals will take place this year between August 15th and 21st. There will be almost 1,000 different activities on 21 different streets and squares. After the celebration of its 200th edition last year, it has taken off and become essential for those who visit Barcelona during the month of August.
2. Outdoor Cinema
The number of activities at the summer cinemas, such as those in the Sala Montjuïc or the Cinema Iliure a la Platja, will be multiplied during August. 'Wall-E', 'Los Sin Nombre' or 'The Nameless', 'Mad Max and 'Fury on the Road' are just some of the films that you will have the chance to watch in these outdoor cinemas during August.
3. Concerts in the Parks
Once again, outdoor music will once again be the main attraction in the city of Barcelona during this month. The Barceloneta Park, the Ciutadella Park and the Gardens of Can Fargues will be some of the green spaces that will host numerous concerts.
4. Take a Walk through the Medieval Barcelona
There is perhaps no better time to explore the medieval Barcelona than August. The good weather makes it a very pleasant experience plus the streets aren't crowded with tourists since most of them prefer to spend the day on the beach. In case you are looking to change your home and move to the centre of the city, this is an excellent option to discover the hidden corners where you would like to live in.
The itinerary of activities during the month of August in Barcelona appears especially full this year. Take the opportunity to enjoy the city in all its splendour with your partner, your friends or your children.
