Tonight and the next few days until the weekend takes place the Night of the Dead worldwide, with very different traditions depending on the country.
In Catalonia the Castanyada is entrenched among the population, but that does not prevent Halloween, with its parties and everything that surrounds it, to be the main theme of most parties that take place throughout the week. If you like being scared, scary costumes and paranormal phenomena these days you will enjoy going to the best parties, shows and restaurants in town. Besides having the best holiday rental apartments in Barcelona, ShBarcelona has several suggestions for you:
-Halloween in Port Aventura: one of the most exciting ways to celebrate Halloween is spending a night in Port Aventura, especially “themed” for the terrifying occasion. Zombies, ghosts and monsters will freely walk through the amusement park and scare you while enjoying spooky shows and parades.
-La posada Maldita: This restaurant in Cerdanyola del Vallès offers the “scariest” dinner you have ever had for a very reasonable price. Before you have sit down to have your meal the characters that appear from the darkness have already scared you.
–Fantasmas de Barcelona: discover the hidden mysteries of the streets of Barcelona in this nocturnal visit based on the book by Sylvia Lagarda-Mata, Fantasmas de Barcelona. On this route you will be told spooky stories that have happened in the neighborhood of Sant Pere, Santa Caterina and la Ribera since ancient times.
–Impro Horror Show: this improvised show in its Halloween night wants to show the funniest face of what the audience will suggest to the actors. The challenge will be to transform such requests in frighteningly funny scenes located in cemeteries, dark forests or haunted houses.
–Concerts in the cemeteries of Barcelona this week cemeteries in Barcelona extend their opening hours to all who wish to remember and honor their dead realtives. In addition, between 8am and 6pm continuously, will be offered in these enclosures, classical music concerts and an exhibition of hearses.
