The beginning of summer announces one of the best period to rent holiday apartments by days in Barcelona: indeed on Saturday, the 23rd of June, all the city prepared itself to spend the shortest night of the year in the open-air. Yes, we talk about the St John´s Eve in Barcelona, a traditional festivity that coincides with the celebration of the summer solstice.

In Catalonia, the St John´s Eve is known as “Revetlles de Sant Joan” and it is a very popular celebration during which the fire is the main element: bonfires are lightening in some streets around the city and there is a lot of noise during this night because of the fireworks and firecrackers…

Many bars in the city organize special parties for the St John in Barcelona, including live music. But, without a doubt, the best thing to do on that night is to go to the Barceloneta and Marbella beaches. On the beach, the ambiance is just sensational: there are a lot of people who are picnicking or who are just meeting their friends… The kiosks are open until the daybreak and there are DJs to make us dance all the night. Moreover, the tradition says that in order to be lucky, you must take a bath in the sea after midnight.
