"LA MERCE" Seasonal Events Tip by Dariana

Seasonal Events, Barcelona: 26 reviews and 35 photos

  Giants waiting in Vireina Palace
by Dariana

It`s hard to describe the incendiary atmosphere spread all over the city.We arrived in Barcelona in the midlle of this fiesta:getting out of the car in Plaza de la Seu I`ve found myself into a circle of people who were dancing sardana; so, we put our luggage in the midlle of that circle near other handbags and shoping baskets,and we begun to learn how to dance it.Peoples were amazing trying to show us the steps.(very difficult !)
On the second day,late in the evening after a good meal and a huge glass of sangria it was time to learn samba in Sant Jaume Square.
During this week we had the pleasure of a wine tasting on Rambla del Mar :sweet or dry,red or white wines ,exquisite flavour
born under the sun of Catalunya.

At the end of the festival (20-24 september) ...surprise:a firework show combined with music,water and lights
