 Santa Eulàlia de Barcelona, la ben parlada. Una Ciutat una Patrona

Display of Barcelona’s children's and school giants

From 5 to 12 February.
El Born CCM (Plaça Comercial, 12)

Barcelona's small giants [gegantets] and children’s festival giants will be coming together in a joint exhibition inspired by the integrating and cohesive spirit of folk culture and the groups that make it possible. The city’s 14 children’s beasts groups are represented by around 20 beasts that share El Born with the small giants of the schools and those of the Barcelona Giants Coordinating Committee. All the exhibition posters have been written in the Braille alphabet too, and there are guided tours for people with disabilities.
