Someone recently posted a detailed message about this on www.ricksteves.com Go to the "Grafitti Wall" page and look under the Guidebook Feedback heading (or something like that), then under Spain and Portugal. Happ[y travels!

The "cathedral" referred to above is the GOTHIC cathedral located in the so-called "Gothic Quarter"...not to be confused with Sagrada Familia or any other large churches. Lots of other "folkloric" and festival-related activity takes place in front of the Gothic Cathedral throughout the year at various times of day and days of the week.

Just in case your travels take you across the border to Collioure in France, a Catalan town, you can see the Sardana danced in the town square each Saturday evening about 5 p.m. (and at other sites duringb the summer.

The Sardana is a beautiful folk dance where people from ten to ninety form in circles of ten and do a rhytmic, graceful dance.

The Sardana is said to have inspired Matisse to paint "The Dancers". He started his career in the Collioure area.
