Barcelona New Year's Eve
Greet 2019 by celebrating New Year's Eve in Barcelona. For the past few years, crowds have gathered at in Plaça d'Espanya, along Avinguda Reina Maria Cristina, and at the foot of Montjuïc. This is the venue for Barcelona's biggest celebration with a spectacular firework display, music and live performances. It’s the planet’s biggest party night and you can rest assured that Barcelona doesn’t disappoint when it comes to seeing in el año nuevo (Spanish) or el nou any (Catalan) in style. Of course, this being Catalonia, we do it in our own special way. The most famous tradition is the eating of 12 grapes on the 12 strokes leading up to midnight, a practice popular throughout Spain. That’s one a second and harder than it sounds. They say if you can successfully cram all 12 pieces of fruit in your mouth in time with the chimes, and without spilling any, then you’re going to have a great upcoming year.
