In August the neighborhoods of Barcelona are filled with colors and fun as they celebrate the main festivities, start in the Gothic quarter with the “Festes de Sant Roc” on August 14.
Then, on the 15th, the “Fiesta mayor de Gracia” starts, where the streets compete among them decorating them in the most original and fun way, which means that each year the neighborhood becomes a theme park, accompanied by concerts every night and children’s activities for the day.
The neighborhood of Sants is not far behind and follows this tradition at the end of August. Decorations with recycled materials, foodtrucks, musical presentations, theater and a variety of activities make these parties the best summer in Barcelona.
These have been declared as patrimonial holidays of national interest by the Generalitat de Catalunya since they are the oldest festivals in the city, since 1589.
