An itinerary through one of the most special celebrations in Barcelona so you don’t miss anything.
Today, 23rd of June, at 7 p.m. at the Plaça Sant Jaume we will be looking forward to the arrival of the “Flama del Canigó”, alongside the city authorities: the Eagle and the City Giants. We will accompany its arrival by singing at this symbolic part of the city. Once the celebration has started, we will be able to decide which place would be the best to continue celebrating the arrival of summer.
We can take a walk around the Passeig the Gràcia and the Plaça Catalunya fountains, where the City Hall has planned a special illumination for this night. We can walk around the streets of the different neighbourhoods where there are expected to be around 20 bonfires surrounded by the typical fiestas. Or we can go to the beach, a place where every year a great number of people congregate and where the night will stretch on until well into the day.
Whichever place you choose, you should taste the traditional Coca de Sant Joan, (a sort of flatbread with pork rind or Catalonia style). Without it, this celebration wouldn’t be the same.
