What to See in Barcelona This September

September is one of the best months to visit Barcelona – the weather is still hot, most of the tourist crowds have gone, but the summer festivals still continue!

There are classical music and jazz nights at the Museum of European Modern Art, there are vintage markets at the university and Palo Alto, and Fleadonia at the filmoteca de Catalunya for those who like to shop and browse. The Festival Major de Poble Nou (a neighbourhood festival) also takes place from 9th September and of Barceloneta from 29th.

What to do in Barcelona in September

Check out the sites now the tourists have gone!

This is the time of year to enjoy the sites with less tourists around – no crazy queues for Sagrada Familia, the Gaudi prize buildings and trying to squeeze down the Ramblas. This is the time of year to relax on a terrace seat (because now you’ll be able to find one) and enjoy all that beautiful Barcelona has to offer…

La Festa Catalana

3rd September – 1st October

Every Saturday until the 1st October the Catalan Festival takes place outside the Cathedral (Plaça Nova) with traditional dances (the Sardana), human castles made (Castells) and giant papier mache people being paraded around – the gegants. Expect to see some extraordinary sites as the castells reach great heights!

La Mercè Festival

22-25th September

This festival is one of the biggest of the year! Celebrating the end of all the other celebrations, there are dances, concerts, illuminations and more. Expect to see a lot of fireworks, firecrackers, hear lots of loud explosive noise, and some scary costumes! The highlight for many people is the Correfoc – which is a ‘fire run’ where people in costumes whirl sticks on fire and through bangers through the streets. It’s advised to cover your hair for this, and not wear anything flammable! There is also a nightly illumination of the cathedral and stage where concerts are held. Here is the programme of events. 

BAM festival 

22-25th September

This indie & jazz festival takes place over 3 days and celebrates a whole load of indie acts. Check out the programme here
