Barcelona is, without any doubt, one of that cities that makes us fall in love from the first moment and at any time of the year. Also in summer, despite the heat and the large number of people who, during the summer months, decide (and we understand it perfectly well), coming to the city to enjoy all that it offers us.
Cross the wide avenues of l'Eixample to enjoy some of the most characteristic buildings of the Catalan Modernism; get lost in the alleys of the enigmatic Gothic Quarter; wander through all the tourist in Las Ramblas and Barceloneta beach. Endure the summer heat with a good vermouth and some "olives" in the neighborhood of Gràcia or know, in first person, the legacy of Antonio Gaudí with his most emblematic work: the Sagrada Familia.

So, we already are in the last quarter of 2018. Before we know it, we will start using our coats and scarves again, if there's any need to wear them in Barcelona... the temperature in the Catalan capital is rather mild. Maybe that's why we like winter in Barcelona as much as any other season in this city.
Jazz can be difficult to define. It's a family of many musical genres and it can be loved as well as misunderstood. Although, considering that the Voll-Damm Barcelona International Jazz Festival has been already playing for 30 years and it arrives to its 50th edition on 2018, perhaps jazz has more fans than it may seem.
At the beginning of the month of October Sitges transforms the city streets, the avenues…and the locals.
When the banderoles and posters in the promenade are filled with King Kong’s silhouettes, you know that the Sitges International Film Festival has just arrived! It is definitely one of the main attractions of the autumn season, and it takes place between the 4 and 14 October. Just so you know, this is one of the most valued cinema festivals in Europe.
Barcelona is, among many other things, a city of festivals. Every year, the Catalan capital hosts events of all kinds that attract thousands of visitors: Barcelona Poesia (Barcelona Poeatry) in May, Sónar in June, the Grec Festival in July or the International Jazz Festival in October.
Spending Easter in Barcelona can be a great idea. Since it takes place on the beginning of spring, between March 25 and April 2, the weather on Easter week is already quite mild (especially for anyone from the UK or any northern country). But what makes the visit even more exciting, is that you will be able to discover some of the Catalan and Spanish traditions for what's known as the Holly Week.
