Mercè is the biggest weeklong festival held in Barcelona to celebrate their patron saint Virgin of La Mercè. Beginning on September 24, there have been over 500 free events going on throughout the city such as music concerts, firework shows, light shows, parades and many more activities. The whole city unites to put on this festival for people of all ages, it’s absolutely amazing.
Castells are human towers that just pop out of the crowd out of nowhere… a small kid climbs to the top for the finishing touch, so awesome! My video was really shaky, but click here to view some examples posted online.
