Preparing for Festa Major de Gracia

Today starts the famous festa major de Gracia! If you are in Barcelona in August, make sure you head to Gracia 15. – 22. August and see what this unique festival is all about! The Gracia district celebrate their neighborhood with a one-week-long fiesta. During that time, the district transformes into a colorful, lighty place with lots of celebrating people. Every street is beautifully decorated in order to win the prize for the best decorated street. The people living in Gracia take the competition really serious and that is why the results are stunning in the end. Yesterday night I walked through Gracia and checked how the preparation was going on.
