New Year's Eve in Barcelona 2016

  • Things to do, Fireworks

Time Out says

It's time once more to bid farewell to the old and welcome the new, and where better to do that than in Barcelona, a place that perfectly combines a love for the past and the future. The biggest party of the night will take place in Avinguda Reina Maria Cristina, just next to Plaça Espanya, with an enormous firework and musical extravaganza focused on the fountains of Montjuïc as 2016 comes to an end and 2017 gets going. Local tradition dictates that as the bells strike midnight, 12 grapes need to be eaten before the last dong is heard, to ensure good luck for the year to come. If you're looking to keep the festivities going, clubs such as Apolo and Razzmatazz host special events, while back on Montjuïc, Poble Espanyol is the destination of choice for many young people.
