Where to stay for the Barcelona Carnival

Where to stay for the Barcelona Carnival

Enjoy the best parades and beat the crowds

There are two big dates in Barcelona when the city comes to life - La Mercè, a fantastic celebration that only takes place in the Catalan Capital; and Carnival, full of massive parades and delicious food. Visiting during the latter is a surefire way to have a brilliant time but crowds can get huge. An easy way to beat them is to stay near the events because it’s easy to get a front row experience if you are only around the corner! The catch is that events take place all around the city, but don’t worry, we have places near the most important ones… Don’t forget to bring your costume!

Apartments close to all of the Barcelona Carnival Parades

Apart from the grand celebrations in the city centre, each district has its own parade on the 14th February, making for an interesting Valentine’s day in Barcelona. Depending on where you stay in Barcelona for the carnival, there is a parade for you! Here are the apartments we have available nearby.

Sant Andreu is a strong community, giving the most authentic insight into the local’s way for life. Their parade leaves from the Octavia Paz School on Carrer Mallorca on the 13th instead of the 14th. Otherwise, for one of the biggest and best parades, you cannot go wrong with Sant Martí’s one! The apartment is in the vicinity of both! It has a double bedroom and a cosy upper double bedroom. All the extras like heating, air-conditioning, and wifi are included. There’s even a small private terrace.
