Photographs van Barcelona, September 2008

We are going for a week to one of our favorite world cities, Barcelona. We have a beautiful apartment in the middle of the old city for a reasonable price. The weather is not really cooperating but it is party time, the period of La Mercé. The festival lasts a few days and there are performances in the streets and on the squares and boulevards, a true folk festival. A parade of giants runs through the city and there is a spectacular fire run. The festval ends with fireworks but this time we ended up in a very oppressive crowd.
Here all all the photographs of this journey that we use on the website.
