If you loved the Festa Major de Gràcia earlier in August, then you’ll love the one happening in Sants! Although with smaller crowds and a more local vibe, the Festa Major de Sants offers an authentic insight into contemporary barrio life.
Running from the 20th to the 28th of August, by day you can expect psychedelic street decorations, cava-fueled barbecues and death-defying castellers (human castles). Yet, come night, the crowds grow and local bands and DJs pump out an endless stream of block-rockin’ beats.
If (or when) you feel the need to escape the chaos, be sure to patronize one of the little bars and restaurants in Plaça d’Osca. And don’t worry if you fail to see it all in one visit, as the revelry lasts for the entire third week of August. We’ll see you there!
