20th to 23rd JUNE – Corpus Christi and “Ou com Balla”
The Corpus Christi is dating from 14th century making it one of the oldest known celebrations in Barcelona. It takes place 60 days after Easter Sunday and this year we´ll be celebrated from 20th to 23 th of June. Sunday, in front of the Cathedral, you can be part of the mass following by a main parade where you´lll find the paper-mache Giants and Beasts dancing. But the most unusual and popular event when we celebrate Corpus in Barcelona is Ou com balla translated to “the dancing egg”. The Cathedral fountain is decorated with flowers and cherries and at the top of the spurting water it is an egg that you will see it dancing joyfully during these 4 full days.
23rd June – Sant Joan´s Night
As every year, The night of San Juan – Summer Solstice – will be held in the city with all kinds of activities, parties and, above all, many fireworks and fireworks. We can say that is one of the craziest nights of the summer season as thousands of firecrackers will explode every minute all night long. A classic option is to go to the beaches of Barcelona, where thousands of people celebrate San Juan until the sun rises.
Beside all that noise and party also we celebrate Sant Joan night with massive bonfire that symbolizes the renewal and purification. Is not a single bonfire, normally are several, each neighborhood organize his own bonfire but, one more time, on Barceloneta are the most impressive one.
As we are crazy with pastry, obvious we have a special one for this celebration called Coca de Sant Joan, normally we eat it on the night of the 23rd.
If you have an expensive camera, think twice if you´ll take it with you, as you never know how this night will end.
