  • The 6th of January see the most important Christmas event in Spain - celebrating the Three Wise Men the festival is called Dia de los Reyes.
  • In February there's a celebration just before Lent called Carnival with parades, costumes and dancing.
  • There's a huge street party in August called Gràcia, and September 11th is Catalonia's Independence Day when special events are held all around the region.

The city is a great destination all year round, but the peak time to visit is spring and summer when the weather is at its best.
