Summer time is here! And Barcelona’s summer neighbourhood parties have begun! But you’ve not experienced a neighbourhood party if you’ve never been to La Fiesta Mayor de Gracia, one of Barcelona’s most famous neighbourhood parties.
La Fiesta Mayor de Gracia is considered the maximum expression of the identity of the neighborhood and is composed of a whole set of celebrations that combine citizen participation and samples of popular and traditional culture.
Each neighborhood association organizes a part of the party, each in its street or square, and the result is almost a week full of activities in all corners of the town.
But what attracts most visitors to this party is the vibe created by the decorated streets. The work that goes into planning, designing and actually assembling the decorations is absolutely amazing!
Our recommendation is to wander through the streets at night, where you can also enjoy live music and freshly prepared mojitos!
For more information on all the events organised during the party, check out the official agenda.
