One thing to know about Barcelona is that each and every single neighbourhood has its own festival. Every month, the spot light goes to another neighbourhood, and every year in August it's Gracia that gets all the attention. If there's any neighbourhood celebration you can't miss out on it must be Festa Mayor de Gracia. During the 15th and 21st of August, this neighbourhood will turn into a 'themepark' with streets decorated colourfully and abundantly. Both young and old enjoy viewing the decorations, as they are creatively made with recycled plastic. For food and music lovers there will be a wide variety of the neighbourhoods best dishes and live music.
