Another September comes, and so it does one of the most awaited moments for all the people of Barcelona: The festivities of La Mercè (La Virgen de la Merced). In addition, this year is even more special, as it commemorates its 150th anniversary since it was first celebrated as the great popular festival of Barcelona in 1871. We tell you all the details of this multitudinous festivity.
In the south west of Barcelona, a military fortress was built centuries ago. Castell de Montjuïc had been the scenario of a lot of incidents which has hatched the city's history. It was a symbol of repression during decades. Now it is a touristic place where amazing views can be seen.
Lights, Christmas carols, street markets, reunions... Christmas (finally) arrives. We love it because it's the ideal time to share moments with family or friends. And what better way to enjoy it than travelling and discovering new destinations. For example, Barcelona. Its pleasant climate -without extreme changes of temperature- and its atmosphere in the streets allow us to live a magical Christmas. If you are thinking of visiting Barcelona for Christmas, at Hotel Miramar we will tell you the keys to live a luxury Christmas.
