When to travel and what to do

The climate in Barcelona is very pleasant all year round and any time is great to visit. Peak seasons, however, are spring and summer. Holidays and festivals are numerous. On 6th January, the Dia de Los Reyes honours the Three Wise Men and represents the most important day of the Christmas season, while the Carnival is organised between 7-13th February. In August, the Fiesta major de Gràcia is a wonderful street party, and la Diada de Catalunya celebrates the independence of Catalonia on 11th September.
