Best time to visit

Although great for visiting all year round, Barcelona's peak season is during spring and summer. If you enjoy visiting at festival and holiday times, Spain's main Christmas day is on 6th January, the Day of the Three Wise Men (Dia de los Reyes). In February, there's the week-long Carnival. The Gràcia district street party (Fiesta major de Gràcia) takes place in August. Barcelona is Catalonia's capital city and as such its official languages are Catalan and Spanish, and Catalonia's independence day (La Diada de Catalunya) takes place on 11th September.
