  • 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 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 pastry shops and 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.

  • Sant Medir Festival

    Sant Medir Festival

    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 "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.

  • Flamenco at Sala Los Tarantos

    Flamenco at Sala Los Tarantos

    Los 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.
