Festivals and Fairs that I Want to Experience in Barcelona

I have always been fascinated with European arts, culture and tradition after experiencing a week in France a couple of years ago. And I’ve been wanting to visit more European cities and one of those that I want to visit in the future is Barcelona. Aside from seeing various famous landmarks and architectures, I also want to attend various festivals and fairs that are being held in and around this city.
