english September #Mercè13 Fire-breathing dragons, human towers, talented circus and street art performers, sounds from Catalonia and from across the globe If you have had the good sense to plan your trip to the Catalan capital during the festival of La Mercè, you will have the opportunity to delve into its veritable soul. Over the course of the festival, Barcelona is filled with music, revelry, fireworks, traditions and street arts in a unique blend of festivities, which not only reveals the most avant-garde and creative side of the city but also offers the chance to discover traditions that define the nature of the Catalan people in general and of the people of Barcelona in particular. During the next few days, you will be able to make the acquaintance of Barcelona s mythological creatures, to marvel at the manifestations of popular culture which span from the incredible human towers raised by the castellers to the parades of gegants (giants) and capgrossos (dwarf-like figures with giant heads), and celebrations where fire and gunpowder take centre stage. But, what s more, in many parts of the city, in the Ciutadella Park and Montjuïc Castle to be exact, you can enjoy a vast array of talented Catalan circus and street art performers, as well as a whole host of concerts, both by international artists and bands eager to present you with a snapshot of the vibrant Catalan music scene. This year, La Mercè will finally be able to offer visitors the opportunity to delve into Catalan history as it commemorates a milestone in the destiny of the Catalan people: the siege laid on Barcelona which put an end to the War of the Spanish Succession between 1713 and Eighteenth-century Barcelona will be brought to life thanks to actors and actresses in period costume, turning the city into a place where the history emerges from the textbooks. In line with the proposal, this year, La Mercè s special guest is another European capital to which the people of Barcelona looked in the early 20th century: Vienna. Welcome to the Barcelona of today, but also to the Barcelona of yesteryear! The great festival of tradition La Mercè festival as you know it today came into being in the early 20th century, when the celebrations became a compendium of Catalan traditions. A hundred years later, we invite you to discover the wealth of Barcelona s festival iconography, to stroll among giants and dragons and to immerse yourselves in a world of traditions in the company of the whole family.
