La cursa dels nassos (The Race of the Noses)

  • Things to do

Time Out says

Certain local traditions may strike you as funny, bizarre, or downright disturbing. You may know that the Catalans ring in the new year by eating one grape with each chime of the clock at midnight, but did you know about the man with many noses ('home dels nassos')? Folklore has it that there's a man who has as many noses as there are days left in the year. He only comes out on 31 December, though, and as that's the last day of the year... So to honour him, the city hosts one of its most iconic sporting events of the year, a 10K called La Cursa dels Nassos (The Race of the Noses).
