I hope nobody’s missed that it’s La Mercè this week! The Mercè is the city’s superparty, and you shouldn’t miss a thing! When I first arrived in Barcelona four years ago it was the Merce, and I couldn’t believe all the things that were going on everywhere. First of all you should check out the concerts. There are the concerts that are within the Merce itself, and then the music festival BAM that is also arranged simultaneously. The concerts take place all over the city, in the plazas everywhere. There are parades with the Giant Heads (yes, it’s exactly what it sounds), the Correfocs (people, running, fire, that sums it up), the fireworks competition by the beach, the Castellers (human towers) and all the museums that are open of course. There are artesans selling their handicrafts, and all kinds of organizations promoting their ideas. My absolute favourite is the Wine and Cava tasting at Moll de Fusta, which goes on for three days. You get to try great wines from all over Catalunya, and also have a bite to eat if you feel like it.

Det är ju La Mercè i helgen! Barcelonas allra bästa fest! Precis för fyra år sen kom jag till Barcelona, och jag kunde inte tro mina ögon när jag såg allt som var på gång. La Mercè håller på hela helgen, och det finns massor med allt möjligt att hitta på. Konserter överallt, det är fyrverkerier, Castellers, alla museer som är öppna, utställningar, handgjorda prylar som säljs lite här och var, och sen vin- och cavaprovning förstås. Missa inte allt det roliga!
