International Folklore Festival: Spain, Barcelona (July 2015)

FolkWay - Barcelona - International Folklore Festival 2015

Barcelona Overview

Barcelona city is one of a kind. Few European cities can offer you the wide diversity of cultural experience that you’ll find here in Barcelona. Couple that with the luxury of 4.2 km of beach only a short walk from the city centre, warm sunshine most of the year, you have all the makings of a great holiday in Spain.

Should you ever find yourself suffering from art and culture overload then you can spend the day recovering on one of Barcelona’s sandy beaches only a short stroll from the city centre. Order a sangria at one of the bars and kick off your shoes, sit back and soak up the sun, sea and the view. While you’re on the beach you can sample some of the best seafood the Mediterranean has to offer, or if you prefer, there are plenty of excellent restaurants and bars that offer tapas. There are also many restaurants providing more conventional dishes if you prefer a traditional meal.
