The Catalans celebrate their festivals and traditions to the full. If you want to explore towns and villages in Catalonia at their best time of year, wander around their streets during any Festa Major (a really big street party with music, food and traditional activities that can last a week or longer). Of course there are other events throughout the year that are highly anticipated and bring thousands of people together. They can be quite diverse, some centuries-old, others more recent but already a regular fixture on the calendar and essential dates for fun-seekers. Check out our suggestions of the main events held throughout the year to help you discover Catalonia.
