  • Patron Saint Festivities in the city’s neighbourhoods

    Patron Saint Festivities in the city’s neighbourhoods

    Before the end of the summer, the different districts and neighbourhoods of the city will celebrate their patron saint festivities. During September, these celebrations are the preview of the city's great festivity, la Mercè. This is the case of the Horta, Poble Nou and the Gràcia area (including La Salut, Vallcarca and Penitents districts). During October, Les Corts and Sarrià. In November Sant Andreu de Palomar.

    All these neighbourhoods dress their streets for the celebration and for a few days they are brimming with activities, music, concerts, popular dinners and games for the young ones. This tradition is much loved by the people of Barcelona, as it allows for more interaction between neighbours and direct participation, all thanks to their pride for belonging to the same neighbourhood.

  • La Castanyada

    La Castanyada

    La Castanyada is a traditional festival that is deeply rooted in Catalonia and celebrated on 1st November, All Saint’s Day. People get together and hold parties where they eat chestnuts – castanyes in Catalan –,panellets - small balls of almond paste coated in pine nuts –, sweet potatoes and other autumnal produce.
    You can make panellets at home or buy them in the bakeries of Barcelona.

    This public holiday is celebrated with family, friends and even in schools. It is often accompanied by chestnuts and panellets (traditional marzipan cookies) served with sweet dessert wine. Around the time of this celebration, specialist vendors take to the streets to sell their hot freshly-roasted chestnuts.
    The Castanyada (Chestnut Festival) and All Saints Day indicate that summer is over and that colder weather is on the way.

    Celebrate the traditional All Saints Day at the Mirador de Colom Enotourism and Wine Information Center. Come on October 31th to the monument and do a wine or cava tasting accompanied by a panellets from Forn Elias 1917 and Forn Mistral.

  • Flamenco at Sala Tarantos

    Flamenco at Sala Tarantos

    Tarantos has been hosting the best flamenco in Barcelona since 1963. Through all these years and into the present day, the 'tablao' has featured the top names in flamenco.

    Barcelona welcomed hundreds of thousands of immigrants from southern Spain in the Sixties, becoming the epicenter of an evolution from the Andalusian genre thanks to the superlative quality of the performances and a certain leaning towards heterodoxy, which led to the emergence of phenomena such as the Catalan rumba and the proliferation of the 'new flamenco'.

    Over the last few years, the Mas i Mas Group has opted to distill conventional flamenco shows into a concentrated celebration of flamenco guitar, song and dance. Our current emphasis is on a series of performances by some of the country's very best emergent flamenco troupes.
