Summer in Barcelona
Set on Spain's Mediterranean coast, cosmopolitan Barcelona offers trendy urban life and easy access to the beach in one place. Sunny weather, cultural delights and delectable tapas delight the summer traveler. Individual neighborhoods host their festa mejor, a kind of block party replete with feasting and, possibly, fire-runs, in which giant (fake) dragons breathe fire over the crowd. The Sonar electronic music festival in June fills the city with beats, and you can take in some outdoor cinema at Sala Montjuic.
