Palo Alto Market: Much more than a shopping festival

If you love shopping and you didn’t get enough with our recent post, you can go to Palo Alto Market on the first weekend of October. This is a fun, youthful festival for those who are looking for urban, vintage and modern clothes and designs. It will take place at Poblenou borough, not very far away from Sagrada Familia, so it may be a good idea to visit the market before of after our Gaudi Tour Barcelona. They also organize concerts everyday, so you can have some fun even with friends who don’t like to go shopping! They also offer street food at the market but, if you really want to eat like a true Barcelonian, just book our Tapas Tour Barcelona.

The Color Run: The happiest race in the world!

The first weekend of October is also the date of The Color Run, a running race with the slogan ‘The happiest 5 kilometers in the world’. It doesn’t sound bad at all, does it? It works in a simple way, you begin the race wearing white clothes and you will arrive at the finish line absolutely full of colours, the organisers will take care of that! The race is a lot of fun and it’s better to run along with friends. It will begin at Parc Forum on Sunday October 2nd.
