Dating back to the early 19th century, it has become one of Barcelona's biggest festivals.
And it sees Gracia residents from 23 neighbouring streets competing for the prize for best-decorated street, by doing innovative things with plastic, cardboard, wood and any other materials they can lay their hands on, set around a different theme each year.
moneybelt saves the day
When heading to Barcelona,the most important thing on your packing list should be a moneybelt. This is the only way you'll keep your money/ creditcards and passport safe from pickpockets. Trust me. Those thieves are so skilled that they'll rob you in a split second, and you won't even notice it. There is even some kind of a school in Italy that teaches pickpockets how to steal from tourists in Barcelona. Scarry!.
Romance by the sea
Tossa de Mar, about 25 minutes drive from Barcelona, is a beautiful and quiet city (by contrast to its partying neghbour to the West, Lloret de Mar!) with a breathtaking Vila Vella (Old City), an incredible assortment of restaurants and a beautiful beach. Far less tourist-filled than Lloret and a wonderful place to spend a romantic evening with the one you love.
