Barcelona, a photo a day

Circ Raluy


We went to the circus last night, for the first time in many many years (over 30 for Rob)! Was great! The Circ Raluy, traditional Catalan circus founded in 1911, and still operated by the same family, Raluy. Will show you some more of it in the coming week.

I was particularly moved by the many references to Federico Fellini’s La Strada.

  3. I think circuses are more common in Europe than the USA. I see more signs advertising circuses when traveling in Europe, but not in the USA.
