Formula 1 Gran Premio de España 2015

One of the biggest weekends on the Barcelona sporting calendar, the Spanish F1 Grand Prix drives into town once more at the Barcelona-Catalunya Montmeló circuit, where it has been held since 1991. The main event is the Sunday race, but there are lead-up events, starting with a pit lane walkabout on Thursday 7th (for holders of a three-day or Sunday ticket), before the qualifying sessions on Friday and Saturday. If you go with your family, a kids' zone offers entertainment for 3- to 12-year-olds.

Museum Night – La Nit Dels Museus
21 May, 2015 7:00 pm – 22 May, 2016 1:00 am
The idea of visiting a museum at night holds a strange allure – it will give visitors a different kind of experience. A visit that is more mysterious in any kind of way.
More than 80 museums and cultural centers are open in Barcelona on the evening of the 21st from 19:00-1:00, with free entry. Many cultural delights awaits the visitors, such as live music, theatre and dance performances, poetry, workshops, guided tours, gastronomy, storytelling and other interactive themed shows. The popular Eat Street festival sets up mobile kitchens that will satisfy those midnight cravings near Plaza de la Glòries.
