Awesome Autumn

One of the biggest festivals in Barcelona’s calendar, this longstanding (since 1871) citywide shindig is held in honor of the Catholic feast of Our Lady of Mercy. And just to let you know, if you’re here during festivities, you’ll probably get swept up in all of the excitement, and our advice: just roll with it. It’s not often you’re part of an entire citywide celebration, and considering this one has everything from the Catalan Wine Fair to a different musical events (some accompanied by fireworks), and even a 10 km race (if that’s your thing), we’re pretty sure you’ll find something to keep you busy.

Utrip Tips

*Keep your eyes peeled for the giants, too. We'd describe them, but they shouldn't be tough to spot in a crowd.
