Festa Major de Gracia

by Ms.Mojo

I'm going to be in Barcelona during this festival, but I'm having a hard time finding information about it. Does the festival run all day every day, or is it just in the evenings? What goes on there--music, parades? Are there things we'll need to pay extra to see? I found a website, but the page that has an agenda is "not available". If anyone knows of a website with good information, please let me know. Thanks for any help. I can't wait to get there!

Hi. It looks like from this calendar:


It starts on the 15th this year and goes to the 21st, and each day it says, "all day" festivities. There are art exhibitions, concerts and all kinds of stuff! You'll be able to find out more about it once you get here. As far as I know, I've never had to pay for any of the events.

FYI, there is this as well, if you're coming earlier:

Barcelona Summer Week 3/8/2009 To 9/8/2009. The major clubs and beaches of Barcelona will host the spectacular performances by over 100 deejays from around the world.

Have fun! It's an awesome city.

information in other language than Catalan about Festa Major de Gracia are difficult if at all possible) to find. It is a very local thing

There most peculiar about this festivity are the street decorations. If possible go there on the first days to see them at their best, as sometimes these get damaged. Once there, grab one of the festival brochures. It will be in Catalan but you'll get a map pf the decorated streets and a schedule of events that shoudl not be do difficult to decipher. Activities are basically traditional Catalan things like Castellers (human towers), etc. and music. Street concerts usually are free.

Thanks to both of you for the replies. They were helpful.

I just checked the website and the particular calendar day links give errors. The calendar only says "events all day." You might find that these problems will get fixed as the dates approach. Otherwise just go; they do competions of street decorations and it is fun to just walk around. You can find a flyer with events listed once you get there.

Amusing and interesting

by Joacim

The street performances you can watch in the central parts of Barcelona are very proffesional (many of them at least). On La Rambla you can find a lot but also the other big streets. I find it very nice just to stand still for a while and watch and interesting performance. If they are good enough, why not give them something for entertaining you!

Winters can be very cold!

by Valeggua

Winters can be very cold, especially when I went there in 2005: it was snowing and I felt the cold seabreeze in my bones...
Not the best conditions to have a walk trough the city!
It was different from where I came from (the Netherands). Barcelona's cold was really uncomfortable and not to deal with.

Winter 2006 was better though, might have been because I took a better coat with me (see picture)

Barcelona by Bike!

by danielcv

Wanna see every corner of Barcelona? Get a bike tour! It is fun, healthy and cheap.

The tours generally start at the Colon statue at the end of Las Ramblas. They can give you a very complete view of this beautiful city. As Barcelona basically stands on a flat terrain, dont worry about doing too much effort to follow the group - although the tour is shaped for the young traveller if you are fit you wont have any problems.

I advise you to buy a water bottle and bring it with you in a backpack as Barcelona can be really hot during the summer. Besides, have fun and take great pictures of the very narrow alleys that you can only see if you are riding a bike or if you are walking.

Satisfy your sweet tooth

by karenincalifornia about Candy Shops

The candy stores in Barcelona (and all of Spain, for that matter) are quite different from US candy stores. US stores focus much more on chocolate. Spanish stores focus on gummy type of candies, and they seem to have everything. This picture, taken at the Mercat, is typical. You can buy a bagful of gummy eggs, if that suits you. Most of the objects, however, are unidentifiable. No matter what they are, you have to admit they are kind of pretty.
