This weekend in Barcelona marks the start of the annual Festival Grec (Greek Festival). This festival, started in 1976 by a group of theater students hoping to update Barcelona's drama scene, has increased in span and popularity over the years. The festival includes a number of productions in theaters around the city, most notable among them are the Greek Theater itself on Montjuic, the Teatre Lliure and Poloví, both also on Montjuic mountain, as well as the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB)and even the Library of Catalunya.
The festival runs from June 13 to the beginning of August, allowing all those summer visitors to immerse themselves in the city's vibrant drama scene. One more reason to visit Barcelona this summer!
