La Mercè is Barcelona’s biggest festival, celebrated to honour the city’s patroness saint, Mercè: concerts, traditions and family activities that you won’t want to miss. It’s celebrated for four days nearly at the end of September and includes 600+ FREE events spread across the city. Last year’s guest city was Buenos Aires and this year’s it was Paris.
The pyromusical -with lots of music, lights and fireworks- is held in Montjuïc, by the Magic Fountain on the last night, and officially closes the festival. The attendance surpasses 120.000 people. This video is the official TV3 -the Catalan National broadcaster- coverage of the event.
