What to do in Barcelona during the SpringFest

Welcome to the SpringFest guide to best things to do and what to see in Barcelona :)

When it comes to eating good food and enjoying beautiful days of sightseeing, Barcelona is the best place in the world. Make sure you follow our mini guide and make the most of your three days in the city!


Before Springfest great opening night, why not exploring one of undisputed  Barcelona's main attractions: La Rambla boulevard, one of the arteries of the city that stems from Plaza Catalunya right down to the city harbour. This huge boulevard is crowded with tourists but the walk is worth it : amazing street performers, the opera house Gran Teatre del Liceu- founded on the Rambla in 1847 and one of the symbols of the city- and many other special features that you will find on your way to the port  make this promenade a must-see attraction.

Once you reach the lower end of La Rambla you will find the monument to Christopher Columbus constructed for the 1888 Barcelona Universal Exhibition.

In case you need to do some shopping you will find the Maremagnum Mall right opposite the monument, a shopping center built where Barcelona meets the see where you can also take a bite of some typical dishes or drink a cocktail at one of the many restaurants an bars also placed at the mall, like Baritimo.

A perfect first contact with the city that will lead you to your first night at Opium Barcelona Springfest.


Although the city of Barcelona has thousands of wonderful bars and restaurants to try out and enjoy traditional tapas and Catalan cuisine, we have chosen some real magnets for foodies like Cachitos Rambla, at the very beginning of another boulevard  very near from Plaça Catalunya, where you can taste modern style tapas and excellent paella plus... more than 55 types of...sangria !!


Around the Eixample district you will find plenty of boutiques and  high.end stores specially at Barcelona's most glamorous avenue, the  Passeig de Gràcia, also a must when it comes to architecture since it  holds some of the most significant  Modernist buildings by genious  architect Antoni Gaudi, La Pedrera and the Casa Batlló.

Since you will have some spare time until 11 pm we strongly recommend  a visit to the Modernist temple and symbol of the city, la Sagrada  Familia, or even taking a Gaudi full tour -you can book one of the many options here.


Time to savor a beach day if you have not done it yet! Springfest will be held at one of best clubs in town, internationally famous Opium Barcelona at Barcelona's beach La Barceloneta, a very well-known surfing and volleyball spot in the winter and the oldest beach of the city.

La Barceloneta is easily reached on public transport: by Metro (Barceloneta Line L4); by bus (lines 10, 14, 16, 17, 36, 39, 40, 45, 51, 57, 59 and 64); and by tram (line T4, stopping at Ciutadella-Vila Olímpica) and it is also a party spot during the whole year.

Do not miss Frank Gehry's spectacular glittering gold fish sculpture at the Port Olimpic and do not forget to visit  Pacha Barcelona beachclub where you can either take a bite of sushi or enjoy mediterranean food before our  Party starts!
