The arrival of summer is really felt in the streets, as the city is more buzzing with people, especially in certain areas such as those nearest the beaches. Night life is of course more animated than in the earlier months of the year, and the nightclubs fill up with tourists having a good time, again especially near to the beaches.

Which fiestas, activities and events take place in Barcelona in June?

Ou com Balla (the Dancing Egg)

Ou com Balla

The tradition of l’Ou com Balla (literally the Dancing Egg) is celebrated on Corpus Christi day (60 days after Easter Sunday), and consists of making an egg ‘dance’ by being balanced on top of a fountain. This strange sight can be seen in various places throughout the city, many of which are religious institutions.

Those who already know about this rather sweet tradition get together with people who are new to it, who, surprised by the spectacle, can’t help but be fascinated by the dancing egg! In the majority of cases l’Ou com Balla takes place in June, although depending on where Easter falls, it could be at the end of May.

Events taking place on the terraces of hotels

Barcelona rooftops. Terraces of hotels

As the evening goes on, or after dinner and after having seen the sights of the city or spent a few hours on the beach, there’s nothing better than going up to the rooftop terrace of one of the best hotels, which are also open to non-residents, to have a drink or have dinner.

When the good weather arrives in June, the so-called ‘Setmana de les Terrasses’ (‘Terraces Week’) is organized by the hotels, and most of the hotels in the city participate, organizing all sorts of cultural and leisure activities. Many of these terraces have magnificent views of the city, and at times they put on anything from relaxing music concerts (chillout or jazz) to DJ sessions to liven up the evening.

Generally from May to September.

Restaurants and ‘chiringuitos’ with views of the sea

chiringuito Barcelona beach

An excellent way to make the most of June’s fine weather is to eat in one of the restaurants that offer views of the sea, whether from inside or from their outdoor terraces. Below we have given you a few suggestions: Salamanca, Platja Ca la Nuri, Xiringuito Escribà, Bravo 24, Torre d’Alta Mar, Xiringuito Escribà, El Túnel del Port, Wet Bar, Viblia Wine Restaurant & Showroom and El Cangrejo Loco. In addition you could also go to the ‘chiringuitos’, which are small bars on the beach itself where you can have a drink and in some cases have lunch.

The quality won’t be the same as in the restaurants that we’ve recommended above, but although it’s not exactly cheap, it’ll be kinder on your wallet than the restaurants and you will enjoy the full benefit of eating or drinking on the beach.

Festa major Sant Pere, Santa Caterina i La Ribera

Festa Casc Antic

Lasting approximately a week, normally towards the middle or end of June, the annual fiesta of one of the most central and popular areas of Barcelona is celebrated. Taking place throughout Sant Pere, Santa Caterina i La Ribera, the Fiesta is also known as the Festa del Casc Antic (Fiesta of the Old Town).

During these celebrations all sorts of events and activities take place, in which everyone is welcome to take part. These activities range from the most traditional: “cercaviles” parades, “correfocs” (people throwing and juggling with fire), and “trobada de gegants” (meeting with giants), to the most artistic, such as dances and concerts.

Gay Pride Barcelona

Pride Barcelona

‘Pride Barcelona’ is the gay pride parade that takes place annually. It’s an event that makes the most of the sunny summer weather and brings together people of all sexual orientations. In spite of being aimed at the gay community, everyone who wants to take part can do so.

Although the events and celebrations last over a week, the first events are grouped together over the weekend, with the highlight being the parade through the streets of Barcelona, which is the most participative event of the festival. In spite of the fact that the origins of Pride Barcelona lie in demonstrations for gay rights, the vast majority of activities are now celebratory in nature, giving the city a great atmosphere throughout the festival.

Poble Espanyol (Spanish Village)

Poble Espanyol

Poble Espanyol is one of the most curious places in the city. Within its grounds you will find, all built to scale, reconstructions of various characteristic streets, squares and buildings from different towns within Spain. Of course activities are organised within the Poble Espanyol complex throughout the year, but you’ll find that it’s with the arrival of summer that the calendar is busiest, with the most important events taking place.

We therefore recommend that when you come to Barcelona you take a look at Poble Espanyol’s programme of events, that we’ll keep you posted about on our social networks (Facebook, Instagram y Twitter).

Cost of entry €6.25 / €11 (check the price of activities in advance).

La Revetlla (Verbena) de Sant Joan

San Juan Night Festival in Barcelona (Sant Joan)

One of the most important celebrations of the year takes place on the night of 23rd to 24th June, which is commonly known as Nit de Sant Joan or Revetlla de Sant Joan (a ‘Revetlla’ is an open-air celebration on the eve of a Saint’s day). It’s the shortest night of the year and marks the celebration of the summer solstice.

During this night, throughout Spain Sant Joan is marked by firework displays and bonfires in the streets and squares, and on the beaches. As far as Barcelona is concerned, just like in other coastal towns in Catalunya, groups of friends usually go to the beach, where they light torches and throw firecrackers and fireworks while listening to music, usually celebrating well into the early hours of the morning.

24th June, the Dia de Sant Joan itself, is a public holiday, and the shops and businesses close, with the exception of those within the Maremagnum shopping centre and some in El Born and the Gothic Quarter. The typical way to celebrate is to have a family lunch, for which dessert is always the traditional Coca de Sant Joan.

Weather and temperature in Barcelona in June

June is the month of the year with the most hours of daylight, and it doesn’t get dark until around 21:30. The temperatures aren’t as hot as in July and August, which means that the heat isn’t generally an impediment for sightseeing outside, and you shouldn’t suffer too much from it.

However, some days are warmer than others so we do recommend that you take the necessary precautions and come prepared. If you’re going to Barcelona in search of some time on the beach, June is an excellent month in which to enjoy it, although you may still find that the temperature of the sea is a little chilly.

Climate statistics for June

Average maximum temperature: 24.1ºC.

Average minimum temperature: 15.8ºC.

Average overall temperature: 19.9ºC.

Average rainfall: 42mm.

Sunrise: 06:29 (1st June) – 06:21 (30th June).

Sunset: 21:19 (1st June) – 21:29 (30th June).

Advices, advantages and drawbacks


Las Golondrinas: As you’re walking around Barcelona and you approach the Port Vell and Rambla del Mar area, we recommend that you go to Las Golondrinas, small boats that are typical of the city, that give you the opportunity to have a little trip out on a boat around the port area. We think that June is the ideal month in which to do it, as the temperatures are very pleasant, without the excessive heat that you may encounter in July and August.


Beach and good temperatures: Thanks to the increase in temperature in June, warm but not excessively so, you can mix and match your beach time with some cultural sightseeing, which makes it one of the perfect months in which to visit the city.
Hours of daylight: There are plenty of hours of daylight in which to fully appreciate everything the city has to offer.


Number of tourists: June is a fantastic month in which to visit Barcelona, and the only drawback we can think of is that it’s also the month in which more tourists descend upon the city. However, it’s not as busy as the other summer months and it shouldn’t bother you.
