Correfoc – a fire beast parade

Posted on 26 September 2009 in Barcelona, always!

One of the best moments of La Mercè. Gangs of demons (diables) around Barcelona participating in the great festival of fire and sound, which began with the spectacular fireworks of Gate of Hell (Porta de l’Infern), in open, gives way to Correfoc.

If you’re one of those who go in for traditional, family activities, don’t miss the “fire beast” parade, a spectacular, safe, night-time procession that lets you calmly observe dragons and beasts making their way through the old quarter up to Plaça Sant Jaume.

Recommendations.
Wear appropriate clothing: cotton clothing with closed neck, long sleeves, neck scarf, hat, shoes flexible, light and closed, and ear-plugs

Route: Porta Cambó, av. Cambó, pl Antoni Maura, Via Laietana, pl Antoni López
Saturday 26/09 from 20:30h to 22:30h
