Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
The Barcelona falcon groups celebrate their 10th anniversary with parades featuring all the groups in Catalonia. But don't expect to see any birds flying. The falcons are similar to he more familar 'castellers' who make human towers, but the performances are more acrobatic and their towers involve fewer participants but more variety of formations and styles between the groups. The parade starts in Plaça Nova and ends in Plaça Catalunya.
