  • Easter

    Easter

    In the days leading up to Easter, Catalonia's patisseries always put on a delicious and original shop window display: cakes and figures made of chocolate, some in such complex detail that they could be easily be termed works of art. This typically Catalan and Valencian tradition is known as the "Mona de Pascua" (the Easter 'Mona'). Mona is the Spanish word for female monkey but, in this context, the term derives from the Arabic word "munna", which loosely means "a treat for your mouth", a gift in the form of a sweet confection that the Moors would give to their overlords to celebrate the end of Lent. Catholic tradition involves godfathers giving the 'mona' to their godchildren on Easter Sunday, although the correct day to enjoy them is on Easter Monday, which is a public holiday in Catalonia, when families come together to eat the 'mona' as their dessert.

  • The Sant Ponç Festival

    The Sant Ponç Festival

    The Sant Ponç Festival is one of the oldest and most traditional ones in Catalonia and is dedicated to medicinal remedies, aromatic herbs and culinary essences. The streets of Catalan towns are filled with stalls selling high quality gastronomic products. In Barcelona, the Sant Ponç Festival is centered on the Calle Hospital, which is transformed into a souk filled with the aromas and tastes of aromatic herbs, candy, chocolate, honey, artisan cheese, candied fruit and much more. Sant Ponç is the patron saint of herbalists and, according to the legend, upon coming to Barcelona and witnessing the widespread misery that prevailed, he began to prepare potions and medicinal remedies to cure the city's sick. In gratitude for his work, the Barcelonans decided to create a herb festival in his honor. The festival is rounded off with other activities that start on the night of 10 May with the decoration of the figure of the saint with herbs and flowers. The following day this is carried on a procession through the streets and there is a blessing of the medicinal herbs brought along by those in attendance.
