On February 6th, 7th, 8th and 12th there is a local festivity known as Fiesta de Santa Eulalia, which is the co-patron saint of the city. There are many plans for this festivity which can be lots of fun and curious for those of you who don’t know this festival.
Among other things you can take the chance to visit many of the museums in Barcelona, which open their doors for free during these days. Some of these museums are for example the El Museo de Born, whichhas received over 2 million visits since it’s opening. Las Casa Batlló on Passeo de Gracia, the castle of Montjuïc, the famous Pedrera and many other monuments are also free of charge during these days.
On February 6th at 20.15h at San Jaime’ Square (where the city hall is located) for the first time in history it will be possible to see the so-called lighting ‘castellers’. It will be curious to see, especially considering that it will be something that nobody has ever seen before.
