La Mercè Festival in Barcelona

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

We are sailing on the Constellation on Sunday Sept 22. My husband and I are arriving to BCN early Thursday morning and plan to do some sightseeing in Barcelona later in the day on Thursday, as well as Saturday. Friday, we are going on a tour to Montesserat and the Cava wineries.

I understand the Le Mercie festival will start on Friday the 20 th and continue until the festivities culminate on the evening of September 24. Can anyone tell me about this festival and does anyone know about any of the festivities on Friday and Saturday.?

Anyone who has been to La Mercè in the past?  We will be there next Tuesday for the closing day, and I'm asking if these three events are different enough to go to all three or if one covers it:

•  12:00 Giants’ Procession – Dances of the Aliga and the Giants – Mercè Castellers [Plaça de Sant Jaume]

•  18:00 Cavalcade of La Mercè
•  20:30 Closing Procession (Toc a Plegar)
