Proposals for the weekend

The weekend is just around the corner. So, we’ve got a good plan for you and your family: to visit the town of Torroella de Montgrí (province of Girona) and enjoy the Fira de màgia al carrer (Magic Fair). This event, to be held from June 8 until June 9, aims to promote the world of magic in the region as well as becoming a cornerstone for the whole community of magicians in Catalonia. The event will take place in a selected dozen locations in the old part of town. Most shows are free.

Another fun way to spend the weekend is to head towards Berga (province of Barcelona), where you can witness the reenactment of a fourteenth century event. We are talking about La Patum, a popular celebration with religious undertones typical from the Corpus Christi week.

La Patum

The event consists of several representations of mystical and symbolic figures, that dance to music and drums, while using fire and fireworks.

Another celebration related to Corpus Christi is the Festa de les Enramades in the town of Arbúcies. This event, declared of national interest in 1999, has been part of this location since the sixteenth century. It consists of covering with flowers completely the historical downtown streets of Arbúcies. Some locals also decorate the buildings with flags.

However if you prefer a more gastronomical event, you can’t miss the Cherry festival in Caldes de Montbui, province of Barcelona.

Is a great way to discover a myriad of ways to eat and cook cherries, which by the way are a typical product of this spa town. Liquors, desserts and dishes all inspired by this fruit, take center stage in restaurants, bakeries and wine bars. They all offer their best creations to seduce your taste buds.
