Coming to Barcelona in June is the ideal time of the year, warm and sunny but not too hot! Obviously, Gaudi’s masterpieces are a must: Casa Batlló, La Pedrera, Sagrada Familia Basilica and Park Güell.
As well as a stroll down the Gothic quarters topped by a glass of wine admiring Santa Maria del Mar church in El Born area, one of the city’s trendy neighbourhoods. For those who enjoy water activities, how about a session of paddle surf at Locals Barceloneta followed by a cold beer on one of the “chiringuitos” on the beach and a seafood paella on the various restaurants by the sea.
For those who love a traditional party and would love to stay for a few days in the area, June 24th is San Juan (Saint John), the summer solstice. Locals gather together on the evening of the 23rd, burn their old belongings on bonfires while drinking a glass of cava and eating cherry cake.
