Festa Major de Gracia, and the winner is…


The Festa Major de Gracia is finishing. 17 streets were decorated by there inhabitants with recycled materials.
Every year, a committee decides which one will get the price for the best decoration. This year’s winner is Calle Verdi, for the 4th time in the last 5 years, with this enchanted forrest. Unfortunately, they didn’t say on their website what exactly they won, apart of the admiring glances of bystanders and some bottles of Cava, the local bubbly.

  3. That's a fantastic creation! Looks like the street has some very good artists living there.

    You asked about the name of Bonifacio High Street. I don't think it has anything to do with the town in Corsica. 🙂 The land used to belong to the army and their headquarters was named Fort Bonifacio after one of our heroes, Andres Bonifacio.
