An exclusive visit for small groups means that you can wander through one of the most special churches of the city practically on your own. The galleries, the crypt and the neoclassic chapel that normally cannot be visited, are included in this visit. The silence, the monumental lighting and the vastness of the building make it a unique experience.
Access to the terraces through the towers gives you a new perspective of the building and enables visitors to come closer than ever to the rose window, the picture windows, the buttresses and the gargoyles. From different levels of the roofs, you can see the narrow alleys of the Born, the main buildings of Ciutat Vella and an impressive 360º panorama view over Barcelona at twilight.
This is an intimate, extensive tour, about an hour and a half long, to peacefully wander through all the different parts, and at the same time, delve into the history, learning about anecdotes and historical events of the most emblematic building of Catalan Gothic style until today.
For many Barcelona culture lovers, summer means one thing: the Grec Festival, a wide-ranging arts event that sees the city through one of the hottest months of the year and into its traditional holiday period. Theatre, dance, music, circus and children's activities fill Barcelona's venues, although it is the iconic Teatre Grec, an outdoor amphitheatre in Montjuïc, that not only gives the festival its name but also provides the location for some of the most atmospheric performances. Each year, an extensive programme is put together by the organisers, a wide-ranging selection that features national and international artists and offers cultural experiences for all tastes and ages.
The festival of Sant Joan (Saint John in English) is one of the most popular festivals among the residents of Barcelona. It commemorates the arrival of summer, and the occasion is marked with bonfires and fireworks, as has been the traditional way of doing it for generations. Throughout the city people burn piles of wood and old furniture, while fireworks and firecrackers fill the air throughout the night. Music and popular festivities flood the streets, the squares and the beach. The coca de Sant Joan (a sweet flat bread traditionally topped with fruit and pine nuts, although other varieties are also available) is a must-try. It's a delicious dessert that's typical of the night of Saint John and is usually eaten accompanied by a glass or two of cava. And even though this is really the shortest night of the year, for many people it is, without a doubt, the longest one.
There are many different sides to Barcelona: the Barcelona with its traditional neighbourhoods, the Gothic, modernista and contemporary city… but there is also a green Barcelona, the Barcelona of parks and gardens. You’ll find them dotted around the city. These green spaces are always interesting, whether it be for their plants, urban design or sculptures.
