Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
When August comes, they say that Barcelona empties but it’s not so: it’s true that there is less movement but a lot of people stay in the city because, even if you’re on holiday, Barcelona in summer is a perfect place to be, have fun and explore the places you’ve not yet visited. It’s also the season of neighbourhood festivals, such as the Festa Major de Gràcia, which will take place from 15 to 21 August. In fact, it’s an unmissable event: you have to go for at least one day, explore the neighbourhood by wandering its most emblematic streets, all decked out imaginatively and creatively, stop off for a drink and a bite to eat, and participate in the open air activities. The best way to enjoy the festival is to spend several days there, but if time only allows for one, there’s a smart way to organise it.
First, it’s important to arrive and leave as comfortably and efficiently as possible, and no one does this better than Cabify: you can choose your vehicle, which will take you where you want to go and pick you up a few hours later without having to wait or find another busier and more uncomfortable means of transport. This way, you can follow an unhurried itinerary through Gràcia. Here we suggest one, north to south, so you don’t miss a thing.
