One of the most popular celebrations in Barcelona is the Festa Major de Gracia from August 15 until August 21 when the Gracia district is transformed into a wonderland of decorated streets, fireworks, music and parties.

During the day, events are held in Gracia’s brightly decorated streets and squares. Two more great features of the festival are the correfocs (performers dressed up as devils depicting Catalan folklore) and the Catalan castells (amazing human towers).

At night, the Festa Major de Gracia is filled with live music, dancing, fireworks and partying outdoors all night long.
