La Diada de Catalunya is a perfect day to go out and just stroll along the streets, watch the parades, attend several concerts and even take advantage to enjoy the amazing gastronomy offered by different restaurants of Barcelona during this day. In general, the activities take place between Passeig de Sant Joan, Passeig de Lluís Companys and Ciutadella Park. Also, there are lots of people walking around La Rambla, Rambla de Catalunya and Passeig de Gràcia. La Diada is also an opportunity to discover some of the Catalan traditions, such as the traditional Sardana dance or the impressive Castellers "human towers" that you will see around the city!
