La Merce 2012

21/9/2012 - 24/9/2012

One of Europe's biggest street parties, roughly 2 million festival-goers will attend La Merce in 2012. The fiesta (theoretically at least) celebrates Barcelona's patron saint, Our Lady of Mercy, and for four action-packed days residents and tourists will be entertained by a mix of wacky Catalan traditions (human castles, fire-running and the sardanes dance) along with big name bands, wine-tasting, street theatre and much more. Official programmes available from the tourist office.
