Barcelona Traditions: Sant Ponç Fair

Hostal Mare Nostrum want to talk today of a traditional fair in Barcelona: Fira de Sant Ponç. Every May 11 is celebrated in Calle Hospital, just next to the street Sant Pau (where we are), the Fira de Sant Ponç, patron saint of beekeepers and herbalists. This show took shape yesteryear when once in the spring the herbalists brought healing herbs to sell. There you can find healing herbs, honey, sweets, fruits preserved in syrup (canned fruit) and candied fruits. The Mare Nostrum Hostel staff did a small story last year, we hope you enjoy it! Where: Calle Hospital, Barcelona When: May 11
