GRÀCIA FESTIVAL

descarga

The “Festa Major de Gràcia” is Barcelona’s biggest, most colourful and most popular neighbourhood festival. Bringing in around 1.5 MILLION visitors each year!

Like all Catalan festivals “Festa Mayor de Gràcia” has a rich cultural presence of all things Catalan, including the “Diada Castellera de Festa Major” which features “Colles Castelleres”. These are teams of (really rather brave) people that build human towers and castles… Up to 7 or 8 storeys high! A truly jaw dropping spectacle to see live. Worried you might miss it? You wont! This festival contains many opportunties to see the local castellers group – Known here as the “Castellers de la Vila de Gracia” – build these amazing towers.

On one special night during the festival a tower is built and moved between two plazas, Locally refered to as the “Baixada del Pilar Caminat.”

Aside from the human towers there is much more to get your teeth into! In the many plazas of Gràcia you will find without too much effort: Live music events, plenty of local food and drink opportunities and artisanal items.

The Gracia festival dates are 15th to 21st August this 2015 year. The first day of the festival is a public holiday in Spain called Assumption day. We recommend visit Gracia in the evening from about 8.0 pm, when it starts to get dark because the illuminations on the streets turn on and the decoration look much beautiful.

ENJOY YOUR FESTA IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD AT GRÁCIA CITY HOSTEL
