The Festa Major de Gràcia started last Wednesday (Aug 15th) and is on until this Tuesday 21st August. It is one of my favourite events in Barcelona. So beautiful, so incredibly imaginative. 18 streets were decorated this year and they all looked fabulous. The winner for 2012 was Carrer de Verdi, always one of the better ones.
Take a look at the pictures below for a taste of the festival and the street decorations. And if you haven’t been already I encourage you to take a stroll before it closes on Tuesday.
You can check out the festival website at www.festamajordegracia.cat for a list of the streets taking part and a map highlighting them.
Cool pics! Verdi is great this year, i’m definitely going to have one more look at it before they take everything down.
Thanks Jess! The Festa Major de Sants is on this week too if you have a chance to get down there.
