We are a family of 3 adults planning a visit to Spain in September. After Madrid and Andalucia for the first 12 days or so, we were thinking of concluding or trip with 3-4 days in Barcelona, doing it in this order so that we could be there for the La Merce Festival.
We could make our plans so that we are in Barcelona for only the last two days of the festival (23-24) or most of its four days (21-24). Which would be a better option?
Mainly I'm concerned whether overlapping all--or even 2 days with the festival--would make it really difficult to do the regular tourist sites and experience in Barcelona? Will things be so crazy that a lot of tourist attractions are either closed or overloaded? Will getting around or even getting hotel rooms, dining options etc be exceptionally hard?
Thanks for any advice!
