La Mercè, the main festival of #Barcelona is here!
The Mercè is the main festival of Barcelona since 1871, when the city council first compiled a program of events to celebrate the extraordinary feast of "Our Lady of Mercy" (Mare de Déu de la Mercè in Catalan), which takes place on September 24. As every year, the main festival in Barcelona is celebrated all over the streets and squares of the city (Plaza Real, Avenida Maria Cristina, Plaza Sant Jaume, Rambla del Raval...), in some iconic venues (such as the Castle of Montjuïc) and other recognized places (Antigua Fabrica Damm). Dance, circus, theater, concerts, "correfocs", giants, human towers, sardanas... Come to Barcelona to enjoy our culture! This year the guest city will be the Austrian city of Vienna, and many artists of that city will come to ours to enrich it with their art. Check the program here.
