Barcelona: too crowdy in July and August Reviews

Busy summer season lows Aug 27, 2010
Barcelona like many other cities gets busy during the summer months that we consider to be mainly July, Agost and part of June and September.

If you don't know exactly when to come I would truly advice you not to go for those two months if your idea is to see monuments, walk around the city or have a relaxing time. This is because:

1 - Temperatures are very high and together with humidity gets very unconfortable being outside and do things like walk or cycle. - Going into the sea would be a good idea thou.

2 - Visiting La Rambla ( and all the center) and monuments such as Gaudi buildings (specialy Sagrada Family) can be very anoying. Queues to get in are huge, in some of them you have to queue again inside to reach to places.

3 - Crowdy places lead to more gangs of pickpocket and being stolen in those situations can be very easy.

4 - Beachs and best Night Clubs you should go early as well to avoid being left out.

5 - Hospitality prices get higher. People say other things as well but I'm not sure about that.

If you can't come in other time of the year you should come anyway, it will be fun. Just be patient.

Barcelona's weather is good almost all year long so other months such as September, October, May,June etc are excelent and you still can get a tan.
