Catalan traditions and festivities

Catalonia has a rich culture and cherished traditions. Especially the summer fests or 'Festa Major' in every town and village show the pride and passion of the inhabitants. Colorful parades, music, dance, fireworks and delicious food are the ingredients for an authentic experience. The 'Castellers' (human towers) are one of the highlights, as is the 'Correfoc' (walking fire), an old Catalan tradition in which fire, dragons and devils play an important role. You've never seen anything like it!
