Over the coming months, Barcelona will host a plethora of activities you can enjoy throughout the city’s different neighborhoods. Shall we have a look at the summer agenda in Barcelona?
The Born by night: During the months of July and August, on Wednesdays and Thursdays, El Born Centre de Cultura i Memòria organizes guided nighttime tours of the urban archaeological site and part of the Born and La Ribera neighborhoods. This is a great opportunity to discover the mysteries and secrets of this dig after hours. Visitors can delve into 18th-century Barcelona whilst enjoying the soft and delicate lighting, not to mention the atmosphere of summer evenings.
Blues Nights at the Poble Espanyol: For the fifth year in a row, Blues comes to the Poble Espanyol with the arrival of summer. Small-scale open-air performances will be held until 27 and on Thursday nights, ranging from the most melodic blues to the liveliest, most danceable rhythms.
‘El Park Güell. Arquitectura i natura’ [Park Güell. Architecture and Nature] guided tours: This activity is intended to showcase this example of integration between architecture and nature, and the way in which nature becomes a source of inspiration for Gaudí’s architectural forms. Visits are held on Mondays through Thursdays from 9 AM to 8 PM, advance booking required.
“Antoni Tàpies. Biografia política” [Antoni Tàpies. A Political Biography]: Setting our sights back on the Eixample neighborhood, it is worth pointing out that, during the summer, the Fundació Tàpies displays the works that established Antoni Tàpies’ identity as one of the essential post-war European artists. For the first time, this space has gathered the ensembles and series of works that established Tàpies’ identity as one of the foremost artists of the European post-war period, from the mid-1950s through the 1960s.
And while we’re at it, since we’re in the Eixample, how about a meal at El Principal to conclude our tour through the Barcelona summer agenda? Feel free to book a table, we’re waiting for you!
