Barcelona - Festes de la Merce 2012

Jump to last reply

We had planned a cruise out of Barcelona in 2012 and wanted to stay three days before. This means arriving Monday September 24th and leaving Thursday September 27th.

I have just heard there is their big Festival-- Festes de la Merce happening every year on September 24th. Does this happen on the same day every year? Or is it the weekend of the 24th?

We will plan to arrive one day earlier on the 23rd to experience the events and avoid the crowds if it is going to take place on the 24th only.
