PLAN YOUR EVENING BARCELONA SUMMER ACTIVITIES
It’s so easy to plan your daytime sightseeing, but when it comes to the evening, it’s hard to get ideas beyond dinning out and going to a flamenco show (where, that’s not entirely true, we gave you some great ideas about the nightlife in Barcelona here and here in previous posts). But what you might not be aware of is that some cool major sites are open to the public at night too. Some of them just in the Summertime, some other the whole year around.
And that can be so helpful when planning your time in Barcelona, specially when you don’t think you’ll have time enough to see all the sites in your list, but then you realize you can do one of the time at night!
So follow me today discovering Barcelona evening activities and what attractions are open at night in the Summer.
These are our favorite Barcelona tourist attractions at night:
Casa Batlló Magic Nights
Every year, June through September, Casa Batlló opens its doors at night. The visit starts at 8PM, and for an hour you’ll be allowed to explore the building with the added help of a fun augmented reality smartguide device. That part of the visit is quite similar to what you’d be doing during daytime. When you reach the rooftop, though, you’ll be welcomed by live music and offered two drinks while you enjoy the views over the city and watch the sunset. The band changes every day, so make sure to check all the days available during your stay to choose the type of music you prefer!
AND BONUS! Here is where you can watch a movie outdoors in a unique setting:
Sala Montjuic - Movies in a castle!
The moat of the Montjuic Castle is now a garden that on Friday nights (end of June to early August) becomes the Sala Montjuic, programming pop and rock concerts at 8.45PM, a short film at 10PM and a movie in original version at 10.15PM. When the movie isn’t in English, English subtitles are offered. Check the program and buy your tickets here (they sell out!)
