For a few days, Port Vell will become a scale version of Argentina, offering visitors a tour through the country’s main attractions in terms of culture, gastronomy, fashion, commerce, sport and tourism.
This is the aim behind the “Argentina to Barcelona” fair running from 2 to 11 September as part of events leading up to Catalonia National Day, bringing a Latin flavour to the heart of the city.
The flavours of Argentina will be your signposts along the route, with no shortage of the famous alfajores, the delicious dulce de leche, a good hearty asado and the very best range of mates to try. Also on display at Port Vell will be a selection of works by the best Argentine creators in leather and hide, as well as crafts and jewellery.
Another of the fair’s main events during opening hours, which run from 11:00 to 23:00, are the live performances. Every day, at 12:00, 18:00 and 20:00, visitors will be entertained by a set of traditional Argentine dances in various styles and from a range of periods.
