Festival of the Three Turns

22/1/2011 12:00-24:00

The Catalans celebrate St. Anthony's feast day with a procession of horses which runs three circuits from the Ronda Sant Antoni, through Placa Catalunya, down La Rambla and along C/Nou de la Rambla. As St. Anthony is the patron saint of animals it has become tradition to bring down one's pets to be blessed, so expect to see God's creatures great and small on show. Although the feast falls on the 17th traditionally the parade takes place on the following Saturday, which in 2011 is the 22nd of January. Catalan traditions such as Gegants and Castells often accompany the event!
