Verbena de Sant Joan, a must
This is considered among the locals as one of the most important celebration of the year. Every year, on the night of the 23rd to 24th of June, a night that everybody knows as Nit de Sant Joan or Revetlla de Sant Joan (the word Revetlla means a celebration that takes place in open-air on the eve of a Saint’s day). This is the smallest night of the year where summer solstice is celebrated. This night across Spain people put on firework displays and light bonfires in the streets, in the beaches and in Las Ramblas.
In Barcelona many people usually go to the beach where they listen to music, throw firecrackers and fireworks. Remember that the next day is a public holiday and many shops are closed. And do not forget to taste the traditional dessert of the day, Coca de Sant Joan.
