  • The Cemeteries Route

    The Cemeteries Route

    The Cemetery Route is an activity that reminds us that Barcelona is not just a city, but many cities, a journey into the past and the present in which we find historical, popular and adventure characters, wealth, poverty, love and death.

    Poblenou Cemetery Route
    The Poblenou Cemetery Route is a journey to nineteenth-century Barcelona through the different pantheons and the characters of the most interesting, historical and cultural burials. A brief but fantastic and evocative reconstruction of a hundred years of history through 30 tombs, most of them, in neoclassical style.

    Montjuïc Cemetery Route
    The Montjuïc Cemetery Route is focused chronologically between the years 1883 and 1936. The route includes 37 graves and is conceived as a sample of the rich heritage of the cemetery. It combines graves of artistic interest with graves of historical interest, all of them included in the two main routes.

    Route of the Fossar de la Pedrera of the Montjuïc Cemetery
    The Ruta del Fossar is a memorial space with the mortal remains of the victims of Franco's repression and bombing, as well as a good number of people who were shot dead in Barcelona during the post-war period. It was reopened in 1985 as an architectural ensemble of great historical interest, where, among other monuments, are the tomb of President Lluís Companys.

  • L'Ou com Balla

    L'Ou com Balla

    This curious tradition is one hundred percent from Barcelona and it takes place on the day of Corpus. As its name suggests, it consists of making an egg "dance" upon the source of the fountains found in cloisters, courtyards or gardens. To ensure that the egg doesn't fall, the "trick" is to put the whole shell of an empty egg. The fountains are decorated with flowers and fruits. The Day of the Corpus Christi is a Catholic holiday that is dedicated to the commemoration of the institution of the Eucharist.

    In Barcelona there are several places in which to enjoy the tradition of "L'Ou com balla". Some venues include the Cathedral of Barcelona, Frederic Marès Museum(plaça Sant Iu), Maritime Museum, la Casa de l'Ardiaca (Santa Llúcia, 1), l'Ateneu Barcelonès (Canuda, 6), la parròquia de la Puríssima Concepció (Aragó, 299) or Reial Monestir de Santa Maria de Pedralbes
