Exposició de gegantons, bestiari infantil i capgrossos de Barcelona

Display of Barcelona’s small giants, children’s beasts and big-heads

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

Barcelona's small giants [gegantons] and children’s festival beasts 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.
