La Mercè 2017: MercèDansa

  • Things to do

Time Out says

Local traditions are still going strong - for proof, see the many popular dances that continue to be enjoyed nowadays such as those known as 'living dances' ('danses vives'), the stars of a celebration created in 1993 by the Esbart Català de Dansaires group. Get a taste of this cultural event both in the morning activities taking place close to Barcelona Cathedral (11am) as well as those in the afternoon in Plaça Sant Jaume (5pm). If you stay to the end, you can even try your hand in the Galop de la Mercè (6.30pm)! This dance was specifically created for La Mercè and here is performed by the Cobla Sabadell dance group.
