Festa Major de Gràcia 2018: Correfoc

  • Things to do

Time Out says

Any Festa Major worth its salt includes a 'correfoc' ('fire run'). And Gràcia's kicks off at 10.30pm when it's nice and dark out, with the Devils representing their various groups. If you've got the courage you can run and jump between the flying sparks or in front of the Gràcia Dragon (of the fire-breathing variety, naturally). But courage takes smarts too, so don't forget to wear the proper clothing: cotton, and a bandana or other cover for your face and hair. Some of the extra brave even douse coverings in a bit of water in advance. The Devils will head along C/ Sant Domènec, Sant Pere Màrtir, Pere Serafí, Ros de Olano, Torrent de l'Olla, C/ de l'Or, Verdi, Perla, Torrijos, Travessera de Gràcia, Torrent de l'Olla,  Diluvi and into Plaça de la Vila.
