Like every year, the festival celebrating the patron saint of Barcelona sees open days and special visits to some of the city’s most important museums and monuments.
The Mercè Festival is an ideal moment in the year for a number of things: for taking to the streets and taking advantage of the last days of summer, for catching open air concerts, for walking around a city that’s all dolled up for its main festival, and if you’re really smart, for taking advantage of the open days at the city’s public museums and monuments.
This year, some 20 museums are opening their doors for free on Sunday 24 September (the Mercé Festival will run from 22 to 25 September this year). Among these museums are MNAC, Museu Blau, Museu de la Música, Museu Picasso, CCCB and MACBA, as well as the Maritime Museum, the Catalan History Museum, Pedralbes Monastery and the city’s Botanical GardensIf you pre-book, there are even 30,000 places for a free visit to the Sagrada Familia from 22 to 24 September. If you stay at home it’s because you want to.
