  • Corpus Christi L'Ou com Balla

    Corpus Christi L'Ou com Balla

    This curious tradition is one hundred percent from Barcelona and it takes place on the day of Corpus. As its name suggests, it consists of making an egg "dance" upon the source of the fountains found in cloisters, courtyards or gardens. To ensure that the egg doesn't fall, the "trick" is to put the whole shell of an empty egg. The fountains are decorated with flowers and fruits.
    In Barcelona there are several places in which to enjoy the tradition of "L'Ou com balla". Some venues include the Cathedral of Barcelona, Frederic Marès Museum(plaça Sant Iu), Maritime Museum, la Casa de l'Ardiaca (Santa Llúcia, 1), l'Ateneu Barcelonès (Canuda, 6), la parròquia de la Puríssima Concepció (Aragó, 299) or Reial Monestir de Santa Maria de Pedralbes.

  • Fiesta del Rosal

    Fiesta del Rosal

    This festival is designed to enable everyone to be able to enjoy a walk along las Ramblas again. Flower selling is a traditional activity which gives its name to a stretch of this famous boulevard, and the Fiesta del Rosal has reclaimed it by filling the balconies with flowers, opening up secret gardens and even converting the Pla de l'Ós in a carpet of flowers which also serves to further enhance Joan Miró's mosaic welcoming passersby. On this day you can rediscover la Rambla with guided tours, by visiting spaces that are not normally available, and enjoying dances and concerts.

    And if your name is Roser, come to the Columbus Monument and you will go up to its viewpoint for free (companion, 50% discount).

    Sants Festival how to become one of the locals

    In summer, in June and September, Barcelona's former villages host their neighbourhood festivals.

The Sants Festival keeps alive the spirit of a major festival that used to be held in honour of Saint Bartholomew, the patron saint of the former village of Sants.
