Well, after we have had Verena, Felipe and Stefania talking about their first or last days in this wonderful city, now it is my turn to tell you about the special weekend which is about to start!
As you may know, Spain is known for our partying, celebrations and very rich culture and traditions. During the whole year, in all around Spain, from the biggest cities like Barcelona or Madrid to the small little villages, you can take part in the ‘FIESTAS‘, or what is the same, the city’s big week! If you have not experienced the real ‘fiesta’ feeling, it’s like you have not seen Spain at all!
Well, this weekend is Barcelona’s time! We are celebrating the ‘Fiestas de la Mercè’ (The Mercè Festival) from today 19th September to next Monday 24th September. There will be lots of exhibitions, traditional dances, concerts all around the city! You can find the whole programme in English in the City Hall’s homepage.
For example, tonight we are going to a concert in the Contemporary Culture Centre of Barcelona in the Raval neighbourhood in the city centre. If you are here in Barcelona, you can’t miss it! If you are not here this weekend, don’t worry, there are other fiestas all year round in different places near Barcelona. For example, in October, you can visit the ‘Fiestas del Pilar’ in Zaragoza, which are very good too!
If you need any information, just ask us!
All the best,
