Are you staying in Barcelona during this Summer? Here are some cool plans to do!

Summer is always the perfect time to enjoy doing what you love: travel, visit your family, spend more time outdoors… Big cities seem empty, however it’s only an appearance! During the Summer many people still go to work and keep on with their day to day which is why we have decided to bring together some of the best plans to do in Barcelona during this Summer, for those who want to make the most of their time in the city!

 

Beach, water sports or swimming pool
One of Barcelona’s most valued treasures is the sea. Lucky us, specially during the Summer! The fact that we have the Mediterranean Sea so close allows us to do all sorts of water activities: paddle surf, windsurf, swimming, sailing, etc. However if getting in the sea is not really your cup of tea you can always play volleyball in the sand, beach tennis or simply sun bathe to soak in those sun rays while reading a book. To sum up, just like in many other cities Barcelona also has local and private swimming pools, another great option to feel refreshed!

 

Mountains and parks
Not only does Barcelona have the sea but we also are very close to the mountains. Even though they aren’t the highest of this region they are the perfect escape to go outdoors into nature. The area of Tibidabo, carretera de les Aigües or Montjuïc are perfect places to go to and enjoy being outside the city for a couple hours. If you prefer to stay in the urban area you can always go for a walk to Parc of Ciudadela, Parc of Montjuïc or any other green area in the city.

 

Music festivals
When the warm months roll in it is almost impossible for a day to go by in Barcelona without music. Summer festivals are some of the best summer days for locals and tourists: Barcelona Beach Festival, Cruïlla Festival, Música als Parcs, Circuit Festival, Jardins of Pedralbes Festival, summer concerts at Poble Espanyol or BAM are some of them. If you love music you should definitely take a look at some of them!

 

Activities and shows
The cultural offer in Barcelona is amazing, both during daytime and at night. There are all kinds of activities for everyone: open air cinema, tours around the city, museums, parks, exhibitions, nightlife… and the list could keep on!

 

Local neighbourhood festivities
Three of the most known local festivities in Barcelona that take place during the Summer are Fiestas of Gracia, Fiestas of Sants and Fiestas of Sant Roc. They are all local festivities that honour each of the three neighbourhoods in the city and that will welcome with open arms all visitors where you will enjoy popular local food, concerts, “castellers”, famous Catalan dance “sardanas”, magic and alternative shows… The streets simply fill up with people and fun.

 

To sum up, these are some of the coolest plans to enjoy in Barcelona during the Summer. In addition, Crowne Plaza Barcelona will open very soon the 173 Rooftop Terrace, the terrace in Montjuïc with the best views in Barcelona.

 

There is no longer any excuse to make the most of this city!

Wake up with springtime to feel it skin-deep

Spring is the time of the year when everything seems to come back to life. We leave behind days of cold and dim light to enter the season of colors, the outburst of nature, the impulse to make new things and to explore the world around us. In all these moments the senses are the main focus, we live each experience getting in touch with one of them: smell, hearing, taste … our experience is more intense when we intensify the senses. It is exciting.

For this spring we propose some activities for you to feel and to live this moment of the year, in all the senses.

 

Wine tasting
With the spring breeze there is nothing better than having a glass of wine in a sunset with good company. And, although we are demanding with the palate, why not learning a little more of this drink that has been with us for thousands of years?

The wine tasting, apart from pleasant, is interesting. There are many characteristics that influence the good result and flavor of a good wine. If you do not know them, the experience is even more enriching. Furthermore, if you accompany the wine tasting with a cheese tasting, the moment will be sublime.

Opera concert
Music is one of the art disciplines that are lived more intensly. It can arouse intense emotions, let the tears fall or make us smile, we can listen to it in solitude or with company. Our day to day is full of moments with music, but for this time of the year we propose you to dedicate a whole afternoon or night, with intention. Focus on what the melody conveys and get in and merge with all the notes.

Massage
Touch is often one of the senses that we have less present but that unconsciously gives us a lot of information: “coffee burns or the scarf is soft” are perceptions that we get thanks to the touch. But not only the activities of our day to day connect us with touch, with a single caress we can have chills all over the body. To awaken this sense we propose a massage session or a visit to the Spa  so that, in addition to relaxing, it will help you to enter into consciousness with the touch and your body.

Smell fragances
The fragrances have a lot of presence in our society but also, the smell is one of the senses that awakens the memories: moments of our childhood, places and even people. Smell has a magical power. At this time of year we would like you to refresh smells and relive memories through the fragrances so that you smile when relating a smell with a moment, a very special bond of ideas.

Go to the cinema
This is one of the activities that we have more assimilated but often we don’t consider that, leaving aside the sound and the soundtracks, in the cinema we work intensely the sight. The visual strenght that movies have and the impact that a poweful image involves has a lot of weight. For this Spring, we propose you to go to the cinema and delight you with well-crafted scenes and images.
