Festa major de les Tres Torres
Dates de celebració
First week in June, in the Sarrià-Sant Gervasi district's Tres Torres neighbourhood
The Tres Torres neighbourhood is at one end of the Sarrià-Sant Gervasi district. Originally it was a very long way from the centre of Sant Gervasi and only began to be inhabited from the start of the 20th century. Its name stems from the first three torres, or houses, that were built there by some brothers from Sants. Urban development there intensified from the second half of the 20th century on.
The three-day festa major, falls on the first weekend in June. Most of the activities, such as the festa infantil, the pre-lunch vermut de festa major and the evening sopar de germanor take place in the Plaça de Joaquim Pena. Popular culture is represented by a havanera concert and sardanes, which bring the activities to a close.
The festa major was first celebrated at the start of the 1980s.
Sardanes. On Sunday afternoon there is a public sardana recital, mainly involving groups of older dancers. That is followed by a berenar of bread, wine and sugar.
