6th February, 2018
This week from 9th to 12th of February in Barcelona, we are going to celebrate the Great Fiesta of winter, Santa Eulàlia, coinciding with Carnival!
The streets of the Gòtic neighborhood, in the center of Barcelona, are a monument by themselves that you shouldn’t miss. But, in addition, during the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th of February the popular festivity of Santa Eulàlia is going to be celebrated, an opportunity which is only repeated once a year. This festivity mixes all the years of history of these streets with a show of popular Catalan culture.
Giants, cabezudos, colles de castellers, sardanes, correfoc… Are the ingredients of this festivity. If you are closer, you don’t have any excuse. This is your chance for blending yourself into the people of Barcelona and share their traditions.
But that’s not all! The 8th of February, also in the center of Barcelona, the Carnival’s king will proclaim the start of his festivity. During a week Barcelona will be full of Catalan egg sausage, parades and sardine’s burial.
The best you can do is forgetting the car or the motorbike for arriving at the activities, this only will cause you a headache, specially if you want to park closer. The best is to bet for the best means of transport: the bicycle.
The best week to take advantage of every one of its days in Barcelona.
