All big European cities with self-respect have their own Comic-Con festival. Barcelona doesn’t have an official Comic-Con festival, instead, they have a festival named Comic Barcelona. It is a marvellous festival and it attracts more than 100,000 visitors every single year. The event takes place in Fira de Barcelona Montjuic, extremely central in Barcelona and easy to access using all sorts of public transportation.
Comic Barcelona is the perfect place for those in love with comic books and superheroes. There are dedicated programs for kids in which they can enter the world of magic, get facial painting, and enjoy programs suitable for children. The older audience can meet celebrities, attend workshops, buy comic books, and several other programs. If you are a professional, you can even enjoy special programs where you can meet people working in the industry to get further help and advice.
