Next to the typical tourist places like Parc Güell we also wanted to do some more local stuff. We were lucky that during the time we were in Barcelona they had the “Festa Major de Gràcia” which is like a festival for the neighborhood with each year another theme in which they decorate the streets. There is a lot of stuff to do like performances and stuff. Something really special we saw there was the “Correfoc” or “fire run”. This was a parade with people that were dressed up like odd animals walking with fireworks (sounds really weird I know). It was fun and scary at the same moment, really a must when you’re in Barcelona during that time!
