Have you been eating your vegetables? Next June 11, the Poble Espanyol will host this year’s Bona Nit Barcelona Festival. Bona Nit (which translates to “good night”) is an experience to be shared with friends and family, with an exciting line-up in an open air environment.
Bona Nit is also “The Green Festival”
The organizers of this Barcelona festival not only want you to have a good night, they want you to have a good, healthy life as well. A major theme of the evening will be healthy living and contact with nature, with plenty of delicious organic food available at the stands.
The Poble Espanyol (Spanish for “Spanish town”) is a magnificent architectural museum near the Fountains of Montjuic. It’s one of the biggest tourist attractions in Barcelona for hosting contemporary art, architecture, crafts and gastronomy while providing a relaxing and peaceful environment. Consisting of over 100 buildings, it recreates a true Iberian village.
