"Another very 'Catalan' thing..." Things Catalan Tip by JaumeBCN

Things Catalan, Barcelona: 24 reviews and 21 photos

 
 

Another very 'Catalan' thing is the 'Gegants' (Giants): Great figures representing most of the time kings & queens. They are also present in major Catalan town local parties. Barcelona's Giants are called Jaume (like me !) and Violant. Giants come out on local patron parties to dance and walking around the streets.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
