Every March, the children of Barcelona enjoy one of the "sweetest" festivals of the city. The streets and squares of the charming district of Gràcia become a festival of sweets, bands and horse carriages. This is the Sant Medir Festival and according to tradition originates from the Saint who lived in the year 303 in Barcelona under the Roman rule of Diocletian, who intensely persecuted Christians. According to legend, Sant Medir's beans grew immediately after they were planted and for this he was taken prisoner. A hermitage was built where the Saint lived to mark the starting point of the pilgrimage. In 1830, a baker from the district of Gràcia made a pilgrimage to the hermitage on his Saint's Day to thank the Saint for a honoured promise. Today, this pilgrimage has become a popular tradition with the participation of many groups of "colles" from the districts of Gràcia, Sarrià and Sants. Each year, on 3rd March, the pilgrims parade all day through the streets of Gràcia and in the afternoon a spectacular parade is held on the Gran de Gràcia street, handing out sweets to all participants.

In the Cerro de los Batallones archeological site, located in the current Madrid region, fossils have been found of mastodons and large predators who lived there 9 million years ago. These are animals which are now extinct and the saber-toothed tiger is one notable example. Through the paleontological remains found in this exceptionally well preserved site, the Cosmocaixa is offering us a journey to the past to learn about the fauna which previously populated our lands, such as the giant tortoise, the mastodon, and giraffes and horses which we no longer see in today's world.
