Festivals in Barcelona

The city also celebrates many festivals. When the festivals are going on in the city thats the best time to visit the city. Barcelona has managed to maintain many customs and traditions over the years, which are very common in everyday life. Nearby this festival area i saw a very classy hotels in Barcelona Spain . Some of the main festivals of the city are Sardanas: Traditional Catalan dance. People meet in front of the cathedral on Sundays to dance it; Castellers: The "castells" are impressive human towers of up to 9 "floors". They originated in the Tarragona region, although they can be seen in popular festivals in Barcelona, especially during the "Mercè"; Saint George (Sant Jordi), patron saint of Catalonia: On 23 April the Catalans celebrate Saint George's day by offering a rose and/or book, and the main shopping streets of Barcelona are filled with book stands and many more. I spend my weekendje Barcelona and enjoyed the stay in the city. I really got impressed by the design and architecture of the réserver hôtel Barcelone .
