La Mercè procession
from 5pm to 7pm
During the 60s, La Mercè experienced a remarkable impulse, as part of a strategy that included the Festa Major as an attraction within the whole “city of fair and congresses” and activities went on for weeks. In this context, during La Mercè, the traditional Cavalcade of La Mercè began to be celebrated, not on the Rambla, as in recent times, but along Passeig de Gràcia.
In La Mercè that looks back on its own history on the occasion of its 150th anniversary, the Cavalcade returns to the popular avenue, although it does with a renewed approach. And the fact is that, for this Cavalcade, the "historical" celebrations from the 60s and 70s are being recovered. Visitors will remain static at several points of the promenade while seeing the “Colla” popular culture groups (giants, beasts, bastoners ...), the music bands and the street artists that will join the party. It will be a Cavalcade as spectacular and full of surprises as always, but in a recovered scenario with a renewed format. Don't miss it!
