Address: Carrer de Sardenya, nº229 2nd 3ª - 08013 Barcelona
How to get there: The nearest Metro station is Monumental (Line 2) which is 4 minutes walk away. It is also an 8 minute walk to the Sagrada Familia station (Line 5). If you come by car you can park without problem in any of the private garages around the room. On the street there is no free parking since it is blue zone and residents. I recommend you use public transportation.
Accommodation: Given the proximity to the Sagrada Familia, you will find several hotels, hostels and tourist accommodation (Airbnb) where you can find the option that best suits you. From the Organization we can not manage the accommodation but here are some so you can visit:

Something exciting is always going on in Spain's incredible city of Barcelona, and it's especially festive for those who plan your stay to coincide with June 23-24, 2019. That's when the official observance of the Feast of Sant Joan takes place, and all of Barcelona comes out during this time to welcome the beginning of a brand new season of summer with numerous celebrations throughout the city and something fun found around every corner. It's one of Barcelona's best party weekends of the year.
About the Feast of Sant Joan
This celebration takes place each year during the Summer Solstice, which boasts both the longest day of the entire year and the shortest night. It's a significant holiday in Catalan history because it represents the time that the sun is at its highest point, and that is important because the sun is looked upon as a strong symbol of both wealth and fertility. Also, the celebrations were held to strengthen the sun with the many fireworks and bonfires so that the people would be better blessed with more children and more health. Traditionally, this is also the time of the year that people believe that the sea water and any herbs planted in the area have magical healing properties, so feel free to join in these rituals with the locals.
Ways to Celebrate
The celebrations are held throughout the night on Sunday, and you'll have no trouble finding your way to the party. Street parties are absolutely everywhere with great bonfires and plenty of dancing, traditional foods, and you'll only need to follow your eyes and ears to find the many displays of fireworks. Most of the Catalan population refers to this night as the Night of Fire, and visitors are encouraged to join in. Stands selling fireworks pop up all over the city, and you're welcome to purchase your own fireworks to bring to the party or for your own celebration.
At the Beach
One of the best spots for celebrating Sant Joan is at Barceloneta Beach, but you'll need to show up early if you want a spot because it fills up extremely fast. Many people arrive in the early afternoon with a picnic lunch to see them through the night, and musicians and drummers show up as the day goes on to provide the crowd with some incredible live music before night falls and the fireworks begin. The bonfire at Barceloneta Beach is always among the biggest in the city as is the fireworks show.
