Two of the most traditional and notable events of the big annual festival are being held on Santa Eulàlia / St Eulalia's Day.
The Saturday of the St Eulàlia Festivities is traditionally a day for children and popular culture
This year’s Santa Eulàlia's festivities will kick off at nightfall with the more formal version of the celebration, with the Eagle’s Dance taking centre stage.
As tradition dictates, the gathering will be old-style, with simultaneous performances, making the event more agile and spectacular.
As part of the Santa Eulàlia Festivities, the exhibition “Corpus Christi giants vs. Carnival giants” can be seen on the bottom floor of the Palau de la Virreina.
From 8 to 12 February, Barcelona will be holding its Santa Eulàlia festival, the city’s winter festa major.
An exhibition bringing together the Corpus Christi and Carnival Giants will be open during the Santa Eulàlia Festivities.
The “Corpus Christi Giants vs Carnival Giants” exhibition will be available to see on the ground floor of Palau de la Virreina from 2 to 10 February.
Candlemas has always been regarded as an ideal day for forecasting the weather, especially how many days of cold are left. Si la Candelera plora, l’hivern és fora; si la Candelera riu, l’hivern és viu is a well-known Catalan saying.
