Barcelona, a photo a day

La Mercè 2010, the cavalcade

Yesterday was a holiday here, the feast of our Lady of Mercy, la Mare de Déu de la Mercè in Catalan, the big annual Barcelona holiday. 3 days of music, fireworks, giants, firebeasts, cultural activities… And a one hour long cavalcade. And oh joy, it started in our very street. Giants walking down the streets, with many drummers, pipers, flute players, etc. Here are some of the musicians. Much more to show you in the next few days!

  6. Looks like a very interesting festival! It's puzzling, though, to have the bagpipe guys there… 🙂
    God bless you!
