A cultural summer in the capital

 

If you're one of those people who prefer to spend their summer indoors, away from the heat, thank you, in air-conditioned bliss, you can take the opportunity to visit Barcelona's museums. There's no shortage of them. If you want to stay around the centre of Barcelona, you can go to the CCCB (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona) or the MACBA (Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona). The first focuses on the city and urban planning, while the second is devoted to contemporary art. If you have a little time available, we would recommend going to the Montjuïc area, which has several places of interest: the cultural centre CaixaForum Barcelona, the German Pavilion designed by Mies van der Rohe, and a little further up, the MNAC (Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya) and the Fundació Joan Miró. But if you prefer history to art, and you'd rather be by the sea than on a mountain, you can also go to the Museu d'Història de Catalunya in the district of Barceloneta.

 

 

Between museum visits, you will probably feel like taking some refreshment. If so, we would recommend visiting an "orxateria" to sample an "orxata", a delicious cold drink made from tiger nuts. Although originally from Valencia, the "orxata" in Barcelona is equally good. We would suggest going to Sirvent, in the district of Sant Antoni, la Orxateria La Valenciana in Eixample, or el Tío Che in Sant Martí. And if you're not a big fan of "orxata", you can always ask for a traditionally made ice cream.

Fortunately, Barcelona does actually sleep on occasions, although it has little rest, because there is always a cultural event of some kind going on. A highly recommended summer activity is to go to one of the open-air cinemasessions that are organised in various parts of the city: the Poble Espanyol, les Cotxeres de Sants, Montjuïc and even the beach. But if you're more into music than films, Barcelona has a fantastic array of music festivals to suit all tastes, from the famous Primavera Sound and Sónar, which everyone knows, to the lesser known Jardins de Pedralbes Festival, which has a programme of concerts throughout June and the first half of July. Artists appearing at this year's festival include Rufus Wainwright, Kool & The Gang, Manel, The Beach Boys, Birdy and Belle & Sebastian, to name but a few.

 

Barcelona's terraces and beach bars

 

Maybe cultural events and "orxata" are not quite up your street and you would prefer to chill out on a terrace with a nice aperitif. We don't blame you; it's one of life's great pleasures. If you are in the old quarter, very close to the Palau de la Música you will find the Antic Teatre, a cultural centre with a charming bar and a garden terrace. Alternatively, if you are doing the Barcelona modernisme route and you get hungry or thirsty near the Casa Milá, better known as La Pedrera, you can head for the inner courtyard of El Principal del Eixample in carrer Provença, where you will find some calm and beers at a reasonable price. And although nothing can match the sunsets in Ibiza, if you go and have something to eat or drink at La Caseta del Migdia in the late afternoon, this restaurant on Montjuïc is an excellent spot to watch the sun go down.

If you have come to the Catalan capital for beach and sun and you have an aversion to concrete, don't worry; Barcelona's beach bars, known as "chiringuitos", are just what you need. On the platja del Bogatell beach you have Vai Moana, where you can enjoy a fine meal and a good cocktail just a few yards from the sea. On the Passeig Marítim de la Barceloneta you will find La Deliciosa: it has a charming vintage air and serves classic Mediterranean cuisine. And if you are a keen surfer, we would recommend Surf House, also in Barceloneta. This Californian style beach café offers healthy food and tasty smoothies. You can even take part in some of the activities they organise, such as paddle surf, for example.
