During the weekend of 12th-14th February, Barcelona commemorates Santa Eulàlia, who met her end at the hands of the Romans after enduring terrible tortures at the age of only 13. Barcelona’s co-patron saint, along with La Mercè, Santa Eulàlia is a special favourite of children. This year, from Friday, February 10 to Sunday the 12th, the festival features more light than ever with Llum BCN. There will be a network of 13 light works that, from 7pm to midnight,
will encircle and decorate various terraces and squares in the Ciutat Vella (‘old town’) district. Among these spaces being transformed into art are the Pati Llimona, the Fossar de les Moreres, the Ateneu Barcelonès and the Picasso Museum. The festival’s more traditional features will still be on the agenda as well, including the correfocs (fire runs), the parade featuring giants, and the ceremony of the city Eagle.
