What Barcelona Traditional FestivalsApril 23, 2012
Verbena de San Juan (24 July) - Saint John's festival
Feast dedicated to Saint John and the early summer in Europe (North hemisphere), in the region of Catalonia is tradition to light fires in all the squares and streets, besides releasing many fireworks until dawn.
Para nós brasileiros a festa é muito parecida com o nosso reveillon, pois todos vão a praia comemorar a data até o dia seguinte, a cidade pára pra poder comemorar, todos vão as ruas e praias. Na minha opinião é a melhor festa da cidade.
Fiesta de San Jordi (23 of April) - Feast of St. George
this day, known as the feast of the book and the rose, coincides with the birthday of St. George (patron saint of Catalonia). According to legend, St. George killed the dragon frightened the people and the blood of the dragon was born a rose that the saint gave a gift to his princess. Custom says that on that day the lovers (as) should give away books and roses to (at) their (your) beloved (as).
This party is very traditional to Barcelona and Catalonia, if you are there do not miss the party.
Party Garcia (16 from April to 27 of April)
Traditional city music festival, It takes place in several stages throughout the city, eu penso que é a segunda melhor festa da cidade.
Festa de La Merce (24 of September)
Festa to celebrate Virgen de la Merced, party with typical traditional dances. I particulary, não gostei muito da festa.
