Since 1871, Barcelonians have been abundantly waving the summer goodbye with the La Mercè festival. With four days filled with celebrations all over town, saying goodbye to summer clearly is a serious happening in Barcelona. Head to the Ciutadella Park, Montjuïc Castle, Lluís Companys Promenade and Trinitat Park, and you'll find yourself in spots that never get boring during these days. Traditions include parades, light shows, concerts, human towers and just overall lots of loudness and brightness to make sure the summer doesn't fade away quietly.
