Barcelona celebrates the end of summer with a city festival to honour one of its patron saints, La Mercè, whose feast day is September 24. It's a huge party with many free activities for all ages that take place across the city.
Among the most popular are the procession of 'giants' and 'big heads', elaborate papier-mâché constructions that represent both historical characters and fantastical beasts, the display of castellers ('human towers') in front of City Hall, and the correfoc, which literally means 'fire run' and sees demons with firecrackers dancing with well-protected members of the public under their showers of sparks.
There are also concerts, audiovisual shows and contributions from a guest city, this year Reykjavík.
Featuring at BAM this year are performances by the bands Reykjavíkurdætur, Grísalappalísa and Samarios. There is also the piano music of Kiasmos, the young singer Glowie and several other artists including Emmsjé Gauti, JFDR and Ólöf Arnalds.
Ciutadella Park hosts numerous events including theatre and dance shows.
At night, fireworks fill the sky with fabulous pyrotechnic displays befitting such an important fixture on the Barcelona calendar.
"The city pulls out all the stops to celebrate the festival dedicated to one of its patron saints. Hundreds of free activities all over the city blending tradition and the latest trends. You'll be able to see gegants and capgrossos as well as concerts by the latest big names."
