Best Things To Do In Barcelona In June

ULTIMATE GUIDE FOR A GREAT JUNE IN BARCELONA

June is a fun time to travel to Barcelona. The weather is nice, but usually not as extremely hot as it can be in July and August (expect for the occasional heat wave). It’s lovely to be outside and enjoy the beach. There’s crowds, yes, but it’s like this most of the year and there’s ways to avoid them. There’s lots of events going on, and the city feels full of Summer vibes.

This post will show you was is special about Barcelona in June. This is not one more list about what you need to see, that applies to any month of the year (we have another post about the top Barcelona sites if that’s what you need). We’ve gathered the best ideas for what to do in Barcelona in June so you are inspired to add  something special to your trip, either an event that only happens in June, a concert of one of your favorite artists that happens to be precisely during your stay in the city, or something seasonal that locals do this time of the year. And we’ll also give you a few additional tips specific for visiting Barcelona in June.

The weather in Barcelona in June

The daytime temperatures in Barcelona are lovely, ranging from an average of 22.5ºC / 73F at the beginning of the month and around 26ºC / 79F towards the end of June. The warmest hours are noon to 8PM. At night, though, it’s still coolish, between 25ºC/59F and 18.5ºC/65F.  But as the heat increases, so does the humidity in the air, that grows from a barely noticeable 6% at the beginning of June to a 33% at the end of June, when being outside starts meaning being sweaty and sticky.

The sun rises around 6.20AM, and sets around 9.20PM – meaning some 15 hours of sunlight: a long day that allows for a lot of sightseeing and things to do! The sky is mostly clear, what allows for great pictures. And the chances of rain are minimal: 15 to 11%, the less as the month progresses. 

As for the water temperature in Barcelona in June, it’s starting to warm up, going from 19ºC/66F in early June to 22ºC/72F by the end of the month. Most locals will wait until end of June to bathe, but you’ll see tourists entering the water earlier than that.

What to pack for June in Barcelona

Pack Summer clothes: short sleeves and tank tops, Summer dresses, shorts… But bring also a light jacket and some long pants just in case it’s fresher at some point or at night. And remember that many churches require covered shoulders and pants or skirts no shorter than knee height. A shawl that you can tie to your handbag can fix the shoulders issue, but the knee length is trickier to fix on the spot.

Bring a swim suit and a beach towel if you consider the temperature the water of Barcelona in June it won’t be too cold for you. A hat, sun lotion and a refillable water bottle will be your best friends for sightseeing. And a fan can become useful when you are outdoors and there’s little shade. Sandals that are comfortable for walking are the best choice for your feet. If possible, try to find something that can double for beach, sightseeing and eating out. It’s important to pack light for travel!

Public Holidays of June in Barcelona (Spain)

Unexpected public holidays can ruin a trip, specially if you are spending a short time in a city and were counting on doing things that can only be done on week days such as shopping, going to a bank, visiting certain sites or eating at certain restaurants. There are two June holydays that you need to take into account if you are planning to travel to Barcelona that month:

Whit Monday (Pentecost)

This unexpected Monday of closed shops always comes as a surprise, since it’s a local holyday that is only observed in Barcelona but not in the rest of Spain or even Catalonia.  And because other countries such as Great Britain celebrate it on Sunday, not on Monday. Plus it’s a mobile day – meaning every year it falls on a different day because it depends on when Easter falls. Pentecost, celebrates when the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles 50 days after Jesus resurrected. It’s a holy day of obligation, and the Cathedral of Saint Eulalia and other smaller churches may restrict visiting hours depending on when they celebrate mass.

June 24th (Saint John’s Day)

Saint John’s day (Sant Joan) is a public holyday in Catalonia and Barcelona in June, but not in the rest of Spain. Shops and banks will be closed, and so is the Picasso Museum, but the rest of the sites open as usual. When it falls on a Friday or Monday, many locals will take the opportunity of a long weekend to travel, so you are likely to see less locals during those days.

Barcelona June Traditions

Corpus Christi and the Dancing Egg

Corpus Christi (also called Corpus Domini) is a Catholic celebration that takes place on the next Thursday 60 days after Easter Sunday. And since Easter dates change every year, so changes Corpus Christi, but most of the time it falls in June. Ask Google when it falls this year.

It is not a public holyday, but it’s a day of observance so a special mass might alter the visiting hours of the Cathedral of St. Eulalia and other churches.

PRIVATE WALKING TOUR OF BARCELONA SPAIN

But what makes it special is that in Barcelona in June for Corpus Christi, many patios of the Gothic Quarter (and a few in other districts) celebrate a curious tradition: the Dancing Egg (L’Ou com Balla). On top of the central jet of a water fountain is placed an egg, that due to the water pressure keeps going up and down without falling, like it’s “dancing”. We explain more things about the Dancing Egg tradition and where to see it in our blog.

Saint John’s Eve

It’s a good thing in Barcelona June 24 is a holiday, because June 23 is supposedly the shortest night of the year and locals celebrate it with fireworks, parties and not much sleep… Saint John’s Eve is for Barcelona a sort of Summer “New Year’s Eve”. Join the celebrations eating “coca” sweet bread, jumping over bonfires and watching the sunrise at the beach. You’ll also find more information about Saint John’s Festival in our blog.

Festa Major de Sant Pere, Santa Caterina and La Ribera

A “Festa Major” is the main festival of a district, town or city in Catalonia. The three neighborhoods of the Eastern part of the Barcelona Old Quarters, the “barris” of Sant Pere, Santa Caterina and La Ribera (El Born) celebrate theirs towards the end of June in Barcelona: the days around 29, day of Saint Peter. The progam of their Festa Major includes many traditional events such as a giants parade, a correfoc fire run, castellers human castles, sardana dancing… Worth checking out!

BARCELONA AIRPORT PICK UP WITH BARCELONA TOUR

Are there any soccer matches?

Unfortunately, the Spanish League is likely to be over when you visit Barcelona in June (depending on the year there might be still one match left at the beginning of the month, though). Because June is usually when the players take a month long break, until friendly matches start in July. The good news are that if you want some soccer-related things to do in Barcelona in June, you can still visit Camp Nou, the FC Barcelona Stadium.

Concerts and Festivals in Barcelona in June

Primavera Sound

During the first two weeks of June Barcelona celebrates one of the largest music festivals in the Spain: the Primavera Sound. 10 days, with over 50 bands per day, from a wide variety of styles. The Festival takes place in the Forum area, by the sea. Barcelona was the first place to be celebrated, over 20 years ago already, and now it’s got replicas in other world class cities. If you want to attend the concerts… hurry up! The tickets sell out fast!

BARCELONA IN 2 DAYS WITH US

In Barcelona in June the music never stops! And when Primavera Sound is over… starts the Sonar! A vibrant music festival specialized in electronic music and digital arts. It has a daytime and a nightime program, each celebrated in a different area of the city (and only the daytime one open to all ages – the night concerts are only for people over 16yo). There’s food trucks and merchandise vendors, only payable via the rechargeable bracelet you are given at the entrance.

Off-Sonar

The Sonar is paired with the Off Sonar, a parallel festival (for adults over 18yo only) that takes place in different venues, that offer unique settings and a more party vibe. There’s many other gatherings that spin off the Sonar Festival, many of them underground and by invitation only. The Off Sonar is the only event that is Sonar Approved, and the quality of the guest artists is at the same level. 

Guitar BCN Festival

The Guitar Festival expands around several month of the year, one of them being June. Their program includes an eclectic selection of bands and artists whose music includes guitar. There’s several concerts every month, of local musicians as well as international ones, young talents as well as renowned stars. Must-check if you love music concerts but aren’t into party-style festivals.

CHECK OUT OUR 3 DAYS BARCELONA TOUR

Festival Jardins De Pedralbes

The Royal gardens of Pedralbes host every year a music festival outdoors, that takes place in June and July. A temporary auditorium is set up in front of the Royal Palace. Depending on the band playing, the public is seating or there’s a space in front of the stage for those preferring to stand up. The program includes big names from Spain and around the world.

Fun activities for a June night

Rooftop Terraces

When the weather starts warming up, the hotel rooftop terraces start reopening again, and not just to hotel guests, but for anyone wanting to enjoy a lovely drink and some great views of Barcelona. Many of them offer light food options as well, and there’s often live music or a guest DJ adding to the already fun atmosphere. Just take into account that the pools are usually for hotel guests only.

SEE ALL OF BARCELONA FOR 4 DAYS WITH US

Tourist sites open at night

Also in Barcelona in June many tourists sites also take advantage of the good weather and start offering night visits, too, that usually also include a glass of sparkling and some live music or something else unique to the place. It’s worth taking into account because sometimes there isn’t enough time to visit everything in your list during daytime, and night tours allow you to check off some more of them. For instance, if you are visiting La Pedrera during daytime, it’ll be more fun to visit Casa Batllo at night: you’ll get a bigger contrast than doing both during the day.

Fun dinner activities

And you don’t always have to have dinner at a restaurant… There’s other fun things to do while you eat, and the opportunities multiply when the Summer starts. You can have dinner at an Astronomical Observatory, or in a medieval mansion, or after an opera show in the patio of a palace… 

What to do in the sea and the beaches in Barcelona in June

The beaches in June

June is the first month that locals will really go to the beach to sunbathe and swim. During the cold months we went to take a walk around or practice sport, but now the weather is goo enough for actual “beach time”. While it is true that the water might be still slightly cold at the beginning of the month, Saint John’s Eve marks the official beginning of the swimming season. Barcelona has over 2 miles of beaches, each with its own personality.

Sailing in June

With the warm weather the wind slows down, and the waves of the Mediterranean get less rough. That’s why in Barcelona in June many sailing companies go back to operating, or if they were operating year around, they add more options and more exciting. A ride around the port to learn about its different landmarks? Check! An outing along the cost to see the city skyline from the sea? Check! A sunset sail? Some tapas on board? A historical boat? A fancy yacht? Live music? Check, check, check! Your Barcelona June trip needs a sailing activity!

The eating by the beach

And now that the weather is so lovely, lunch by the sea is another must (and a great way to check off the waterfront from your already packed sightseeing list if you are not planning to go to the beach). Don’t miss our selection of favorite Barcelona beach restaurants. Just take into account that eating outside means no air conditioning, and that in Spain it’s still allowed to eat in restaurant terraces but not indoors. What means there’s a chance you’ll get a smoker in the table next to yours… Need more ideas for eating oudoors in Barcelona in June? We have a post about restaurants with a garden and how to organize a picnic in Barcelona!

What to eat in June in Barcelona

Savoury dishes

In June gazpacho is back to Barcelona restaurant menus as a favorite starter. A tapa of ensaladilla rusa (potato salad) feels nice and refreshing. And empedrat (Catalan salad with beans, salted cold and tuna) and esqueixada (same without the beans) make a great starter as well. A Paella is the perfect choice for a long meal by the sea when you aren’t in a rush.

BARCELONA GOURMET WALKING TOUR

Sweet Specialties

Buy some Coca de Sant Joan (with candy fruit, cream or lard and almonds) from any bakery or cake shop during the days before and after June 23. And tour the best gelato shops of Barcelona: a few of them have won international prices! And walk around the Boqueria market to find the best seasonal Summer fruit: baby pears (peretes de Sant Joan), loquats, apricots, cherries, watermelon…

What to drink

Finally, you won’t look like a silly tourist ordering sangria… because sangria is a Summer drink! So now not only tourist traps but also local restaurants will start having it again in their drinks menu in Barcelona in June. You’ll also notice that locals order beer all the time, and often it’ll be mixed with lemon soda – we call it “clara“, and it’s super refreshing.

OURS IS THE BEST TAPAS TOUR BARCELONA HAS TO OFFER

There’s Summer non-alcoholic beverages that you need to try, too: orxata and granizados. Orchata is a plant-based drink made with tigernut, sugar and water. It looks like milk but it tastes like a totally different thing: either you love it or you hate it – there’s no intermediate point. Granizados are slushes. The most common flavors are lemon and orange, but you can see also coffee and other flavors occasionally. And talking about coffee: in the Summer locals switch their cafe solo (expresso) by cafe con hielo (expresso with ice cubs).

Other Barcelona events in June worth checking

Barcelona Design Week

Do you need more things to do? The Barcelona Design Week is organized by Barcelona Centre de Disseny to discuss design and creativity projects and how they transform the world in many different levels. It consists of an official program of activities, and a parallel OFF BDW festival with exhibits, open door days, workshops and conferences around the city. Despite its name, it lasts more than just a week, but around the first couple of weeks of June.

Gay Pride

Barcelona is an LGTB-friendly city, with many businesses catering their needs and even an entire area of the city, known as “Gaixample”, concentrating a large amount of them but at the same time integrating with the rest of the local society rather than becoming a ghetto. The LGTB community of Barcelona celebrates Gay Pride during the last two weeks of June, with a big demonstration that combines celebration, awareness and the claim for the recognition of their rights.

DON’T MISS OUR LA SAGRADA FAMILIA GUIDED TOUR

Palo Market Festival

And if you are visiting Barcelona in June, make sure to check if your visit hits the Palo Market festival that happens every month in the artists hub of PaloAlto in the Poblenou district. Live music, local designers market, food trucks and cultural activities for kids and adults make it a fun thing to do to spend some time mixing up with cool locals and exploring an area of the city that is sort of off the beaten path.

Check out the pavement of Sant Felip Neri covered in yellow flowers

The tipuana tree blooms in June, and with the breeze thousands of flowers fall to the ground, carpeting everything of bright yellow. The square of Sant Felip Neri is a beautiful corner of the Gothic Quarter that offers wonderful photo opportunities all year around, but they are even better this time of the year. Just remember to go on the weekends or after 6PM during weekdays because the square is closed for use of a local school during school hours.
