With the start of a new year in Barcelona comes the promise of an excellent array of returning festivals, all of which have helped cement the Catalonian capital’s status as one the most vibrant and happening cities in Europe.Fun fair

One such festival returning in late April/early May is the Feria de Abril de Catalunya, which is inspired by Seville’s grand Feria de Abril, offering up a great excuse to travel over for those looking at enjoying a break in one of the excellent Barcelona hotels this spring.

Described by one critic as a ‘sprawling and joyously tacky event’, the week-long festival is a treat for fans of fried squid and candyfloss, whilst rows upon rows of extravagantly decorated marquees entertain all ages.

There is also a funfair available, meaning children can combine tasty refreshments with fun-filled rides in what will be an occasion suitable for the whole family.
