By | 8 April, 2019 | 0 comments

Barcelona is a city to be enjoyed all-year round but in the summertime temperatures of an average of 24ºC and a calender full of activities make it the ideal holiday destination.

Barcelona en verano

Below are some of the best events on offer in the summer in Barcelona.

Music in the Park 2019

Music takes over the parks in Barcelona during the summer months in an event that has won over the hearts of the residents of Barcelona. Classical music and the sound of live blues set the rhythm throughout summer evenings in the parks in the city.

Barcelona in the summertime: Grec Festival

Culture of all forms takes over Barcelona in July as theatre, dance, music and circus acts rule the streets. The Grec Festival, which starts on the 1st July and ends on the 31st July, gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy shows performed by international artists in the most symbolic sights around the city.

Open-air Cinema in Montjüic

The moat that surrounds Santa Eulália in the Montjüic Castle transforms into the best summer cinema in Barcelona. Showings start on the 29th June to 2nd August and viewers are permitted to take food and drink and blankets to sit on.

Summer Terraces

One of the best plans in Barcelona is to make the most of long summer evenings whilst enjoying a delicious drink in one of the many roof terraces around the city. We recommend you our open-air terraces in the city centre where you will find privacy and total relaxation, enjoy them in HCC Regente, HCC St Moritz and HCC Montblanc hotels.

Barcelona Beaches

Although Barceloneta beach is probably the most popular, Barcelona offers 9 beaches in total where visitors can relax and take a refreshing dip in the Mediterranean. Water sports are a wonderful idea to really make the most of the summer holidays.


Local Parties

Despite being one of the most visited cities in Europe, Barcelona maintains its traditions and the diverse culture in each neighbourhood by celebrating local festivals. People take to the streets for their annual party.

Drink a “horchata”

Drinking a “horchata”, a typical drink from Valencia, is a must for visitors to Barcelona in the summertime. Horchata is both refreshing and nutritional, and we recommend trying an artisan one in El Tío Che, la Orxatería, La Valenciana or in Sirvent among others.

These are just a few of the activities that Barcelona has on offer throughout the summer months. Reserve a room in one of our hotels situated in the heart of the city and make the most of your summer break!
