In its 194th year, the oldest Tres Tombs cavalcade in the city gets underway at 10.30am with a gathering at the corner of Av. Paral·lel and C/Tamarit, followed by the reading of the proclamation and the handing out of flags to the participants in the cavalcade, which itself sets off at 11am and includes the blessing of animals (bring your pets!) at the Escoles Pias school (Ronda de Sant Pau, 72).
The cavalcade route: the corner of Av. Paral·lel and C/Tamarit, Tamarit to Mercat Sant Antoni, Parlament, Ronda de Sant Pau, Urgell, Floridablanca, Ronda Sant Antoni, Plaça Universitat, Pelai, La Rambla (heading down toward the sea). The way back is along Av. Drassanes to Av. Paral·lel to Plaça de Puig i Cadafalch.
