Whether you are staying in your villa on the Costa Brava, have rented a Barcelona accommodation or have a vacation rental on the Costa Dorada, there is an August festival near you!
During the last weekend of August, see this fabulous ancient town in all its Medieval glory as you step back in time. The history and fantasy of this Catalonian jewel come to life as you join in with the most important Medieval festival in the region.
Not only is this incredible music festival set in one of the most beautiful coastal resorts Catalonia has to offer, it also showcases a wide range of musical genres for everyone to enjoy. Any music lover should make sure they are in Cadaques during the first two weeks in August for the 45th annual festival.
