  • Three King's Parade in Barcelona

    Three King's Parade in Barcelona

    It is said that this is the most magical night of the year, and these three characters are definitely to 'blame'. The Three Kings are enthusiastically welcomed by children and adults every 5 January, just a few hours before they visit our homes bringing gifts for everyone who has been good during the rest of the year. The afternoon of the 5th of January, the Three Kings, with the amazing entourage, will most probably reach the city by sea, docking at the Barcelona Port and then they will parade around the city, giving sweets to the crowds as a prelude to this unique night. The Three King's floats, magnificently decorated, reflect all of the excitement and magic of this special tradition. Weeks beforehand, boys and girls have sent their letter to the Three Kings, asking for their gifts and at last they will see them in real life.

    The Parade starts from Av. del Marquès de l'Argentera at 6pm. The Three Kings and their retinue will then make their way through Pla de Palau, Pg. Isabel II, Via Laietana, Pl. Urquinaona, Fontanella, Pl. Catalunya, Pelai, Pl. Universitat, Rda. Sant Antoni, Sepúlveda, Av. Paral·lel, Pl. Espanya and Av. Reina Maria Cristina.

  • Agon! The competition in ancient Greece

    Agon! The competition in ancient Greece

    Hundreds of years after the Ancient Greek period ended, we're still as fascinated as ever with the extraordinary exploits, developments and legends of that time. The literature, sport and theatre, not to mention the political systems and philosophy, continue to resonate today along with many other of its facets. The British Museum in London is renowned as a holder of myriad artefacts dating from the 1,500 years or so that the Ancient Greek period lasted, and Barcelona's CaixaForum cultural organisation has reached an agreement with the museum for the display of a selection of those artefacts both here and at some of its other sites around Spain. Specifically, the exhibition will explore the world of Ancient Greece through the subjects of competition and rivalry. It will cover themes such as the polis (‘city states'), war and the origins of the Olympic Games via pieces such as those from the Mausoleum of Halikarnassos, which are shown outside London for the first time.
