Correfocs are run during the Festival of La Mercè in Barcelona .
Saturday the 23rd of September 2017 :
La Mercè is the annual festival (festa major in Catalan) of the city of Barcelona in Catalonia. It has been an official city holiday since 1871, when the local government first organized a program of special activities to observe the Roman Catholic feast day of Our Lady of Mercy, La Mare de Déu de la Mercè in Catalan.
Some of the most important features of the festival were introduced in the year 1902, when parades included papier maché “giants” known as gegants i capgrossos and a popular dance from Empordà that was becoming popular throughout Catalonia: the Sardana. Introduced traditions are the annual Catalan Wine Fair, Castellers human towers procession ,a special Correfoc, a 10 km race and the pyro-musical, a display,featuring synchronized fireworks, water fountains and music conducted at the base of the Montjuïc mountain. The holiday has enjoyed immense local popularity ever since.
We invite you discover the unique correfoc tradition. You’ll take a trip in Barcelona ,where you’ll discover its customs and festivals. At nightfall, the traditional devils and bonfires await you.
When you arrive here, you will be immersed in the atmosphere of an authentic festival full of honest exhibitions. You will hear the traditional instruments announce the arrival of the demons. Join the party, dance among the red and black cloaks, jump among the sparks, or watch the entertainment at some distance from the flames.
Enjoy a genuine night out and let the magic of the masks and energy of the devils sweep you away, while you know everything about the fireworks, costumes and origins of this centuries-old Catalan tradition. You’ll get back from Barcelona with a unique memento and a great adventure to relate.
