Cadaques ok for New Years or better to stay in Barcelona?

We are booking a week in Barcelona at the end of the year and taking day or overnight trips from there. We thought of staying in Cadaques over New Years to avoid the city crush and have a smaller celebration then head back to the city the 2nd.

Anyone have an aopinion on this?

The other towns we thoughtof visiting are Besalu and Paratallada so please tell if either of those would be nicer at New Years also.

Thanks

1. Re: Cadaques ok for New Years or better to stay in Barcelona?

never been to any of these towns by nye so no direct experience

but nye in barcelona is mainly celebrated at the street by tourists, we locals usually do it at home, maybe going out after midnight

in small towns usually people congregate in the main square to eat the grapes and later usually there is some music and dance ('revetlla') until wee hours

in cadaques they do something quite unique since a few years ago: people congregate at 7am on jan 1 at 'cap de creus' to have hot chocolate while seeing the earliest new year sunrise of the peninsula ;) sounds cool!
