Do you like partying? Do you like dancing in the street? Then rent some short term housing and head to Barcelona come September time. The Festes de la Mercè hit Barcelona every year in September and what was once a fairly subdued religious festival has now turned into a fully blown week long party with dancing, singing and theatre performances.
The festival is a celebration of all things Catalan. The frenzy of activity takes place by the sea on the beautiful beaches that Barcelona has come to be known for. There are performances all week long that include dancing, singing and theatre and a plethora of free concerts to be enjoyed. Children are treated to entertainment and activities ensuring they never have time to get bored. There is an incredible air show that takes place over the sea and a spectacular firework display that lights up the night sky.
All genres of music can be found at this week long spectacle. One minute you might be watching a traditional flamenco performance, the next minute you could be dazzled with a hip-hop show. If you have never been to Barcelona before then there is no better way to get to know the city and the culture than by enjoying this festival.
There is no doubt that the best way to really enjoy this festival is to have short term housing or a short term rental of some kind to return to in the evening. Having short term housing provides all the privacy and space you could need after a day spent partying on the beach. There is no breakfast to get up early for and you don’t have to leave so the rooms can be cleaned! The Festes de la Mercè and rentals housing together make for an unforgettable holiday in Barcelona.
