Catalan tradition

When you discover our region, you will not just be visiting incredible places: you’ll be experiencing and taking part in our most popular traditions, such as castellers, sardana dancing or correfocs. These traditions are common as part of the Fiestas Mayores (Great Festivities), which are celebrated in summer.

The castells are human towers made by groups of participants, the castellers, who gather together to climb up onto the shoulders of one another, forming tall human castles that will take your breath away. The sardana is a traditional Catalan dance that is danced in a group forming a circle. Music is usually performed live on traditional instruments. The correfocs are festivals where people run and dance beneath fire (fireworks) disguised as demons. The music that accompanies them is a samba-style drumming.
