BARCELONA: LA MERCE 2010

In 2010 I have enjoyed some of the many events taking place in Barcelona during the Mercè festivities. During these days the city streets are filled with people and the atmosphere is cheerful and lively day and night. Below I would like to show you some pictures of the events I enjoyed this time.


Fire Run

The Fire Run is the great festival of fire, which starts with the opening of the gates of Hell, from which all kinds of devils and fire beasts pour out, throwing bangers and fireworks, filling the central streets of Barcelona with light and smell of gunpowder. Below you can see some pictures of one of the Fire Runs of this year in Barcelona.














Piromusical


The Piromusical is the closing ceremony of The Feast of La Merce, the patron of Barcelona, which takes place every 24th September. Light, Fire, Water and Music are mixed together in a beautiful and impressive spectacle where the colourful water of the Montjuïc Magic Fountain and Fireworks follow the rhythm of the Music. Below, some pictures of the Piromusical 2010.
