Corpus Christi 2017: Open Day

Sixty days after Easter Sunday, Corpus Christi celebrations are held around Barcelona. The big attraction is undoubtedly 'l'ou com balla' ('the dancing egg'), but there's also a more modern tradition in town, in which various spaces around Barcelona open their doors to the public so you can get to know, or rediscover, landmark buildings, including the Ajuntament (June 15, 10am-8pm), the cloister at the Pedralbes monastery (June 15, 10am-5pm), the gardens at the Ateneu Barcelonès (June 15, 11am-8pm), the Casa de l'Ardiaca, the Santa Anna cloister (Santa Anna, 29), the Casa dels Entremesos (until June 18 at 2pm), and the Acadèmia de Bones Lletres (Bisbe Caçador, 3) (until June 17 at 8pm).

What's more, on June 18 you can see the traditional festive parade that closes the celebrations. It kicks off at 7.15pm from Plaça Sant Jaume, and heads along C/ del Bisbe and Plaça Nova, where it joins up with the Corpus Christi procession, which itself leaves from Av de la Catedral at 7.45pm, heading then to Plaça Nova, C/ dels Arcs, Portal de l'Angel, C/Comtal, Via Laeitana, and C/ de Joquim Pou, before heading back to the Av de la Catedral once again.
