    Bringing together three popular elements of Catalan culture, music, wine and gastronomy, this annual festival organises intimate concerts (many of them outdoors) in wineries around the Penedès, Bagès and Empordà areas of Catalonia.

Combining beautiful Catalan landscapes, the warm evenings of the season, quality musical performances, and tastings of local wines, cavas and other specialities, it's the ideal marriage of food, drink and entertainment.

    Among the artists taking part, you might hear a chamber orchestra, a barbershop quartet or a rising Catalan pop star.

  • Fira de Fia-Faia - Bagà and Sant Julià de Cerdanyola

    Fira de Fia-Faia - Bagà and Sant Julià de Cerdanyola

    In the Catalan towns of Bagà and Sant Julià de Cerdanyola, situated in the Natural Park of Cadí-Moixeró, December 24 doesn't mean the arrival of Father Christmas. Instead, to mark the longest night of the year, the two municipalities come together to celebrate the ancient festival of Fia-Faia. Declared by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2015, this pre-Christian tradition starts with the lighting of a bonfire up in the mountains in a spot that's visible from below. Torches made from a plant thought to have cleansing properties are lit from the bonfire and carried down to the two towns, creating a beautiful river of flame. Later in the evening, all the torches are left to burn in the centre of each town, and a poetic line is recited: 'Fia-faia, que nostro Senyor ha nascut a la paia' – 'Fia-faia, our Lord has been born on straw'.
