Take your bicycle and go to this very special sector of Barcelona. You will experience a different Festa Major from any other one.
And after months of preparations this weekend the Festa Major de Gràcia has started. To everyone who doesn’t know about this fiesta yet, this is an event characterized by the fact that its neighbours transform their streets into real works of art.
There are 18 streets exposed to everyone who goes there, with very different themes: from circus, to theme parks, airports, Japan, revolutions, animals, vegetation… the imagination of the neighbours is endless.
You can arrive, go through the different streets and decide which of them is your favourite one, although this year they have already proclaimed the winner, the Verdi Street.
Streets are cut off everywhere and the parking places (including the paying ones) are usually full all the time, so the best choice is to take the bike, park it close to the sector, and go around it walking. In some of these decorated streets there is a controlled access: 30 people every 3 minutes, a control to avoid an agglomeration.
If you are in Barcelona you should enjoy these streets, exhibitions, activities, expositions and at night you cannot miss the concerts of this very special fiesta.
