Mercè 2014: Saturno Park at Ciutadella

  • Things to do

Time Out says

In the early 20th century in the Parc de la Ciutadella there was a funfair called Saturno Park. La Mercè is getting in on the vintage trend and bringing back an amusement park like those that were around in the 1950s and 1960s. It's taken the collaboration of many to pull it off. The company Comediants, directed by Jaume Bernadet, introduces us to characters like Madame Brigitte Rebost and Don Genaro Estraperlista in a show that involves all the senses. Meet Herta Frankel's magnificent puppets, take a spin on the carousels, ride the ponies, enjoy all the extravagant attractions of France's Régis Masclet, and the 'Automatàrium' show from the David Berga company, featuring automatons that seem so real that they just might be at that. At Saturno Park you'll get non-stop surprises, humour, dance, street theatre and more. And the park doesn't close at night, when you'll find singing busts, lights and colours in the waterfalls... all the fantasy and magic of a park that lives on.


Opening hours:
Fri 19 - Wed 24, 10am-midnight
