This weekend, the last August, also sees the end of many cultural events that have delighted the city this month. The Mas i Mas Festival sadly comes to an end, with a closing concert by the new international folk-soul sensation Aloe Blacc today at the Palau de la Musica.

Over this weekend there are still dozens of performances happening however, with a line-up including home-grown talent The Sweet Vandals. This is the third consecutive summer that Barcelona’s modernist gems have been made more accessible to its citizens, with half price discounts at until September 15th. This year the Bellesguard House and Leon Morera House have been added to the initiative.

Night time is another opportunity for some great events in the city. Summer nights are the perfect setting for dining outdoors and see the city from a new perspective. The Fabra Observatory offers you the chance to see the stars at a marvellous outdoor dinner dining experience that should make a great romantic date.

The Egyptian Museum of Barcelona also opens its doors when the sun sets. You can explore ancient Egypt through guided tours at night, and even sample some products that were part of the Egyptian diet!

Plenty to see and do! But do not fear, though August is coming to a close the Autumn promises many new exciting cultural events in the city.
