May in Catalonia

and the Catalan-speaking countries

May is a particularly interesting month in Catalonia. Here you will find the major historical events and festivals listed as well as birth and death anniversaries of important Catalans. 

The weather really could not better than it is in May. The days are sunny and warm enough to go to the beach but the evenings are cool enough to sleep easily.

The most important Historical Events, Births, Deaths and Festivals and Commemorations in May in Catalonia and the Catalan-speaking countries are listed below and if you scroll down to the bottom of the page you will find links to more detailed pages dedicated to each day of the month.

Many of the sayings associated with May in Catalonia focus on either the fact that the countryside is bursting into flower or that there are occasional rain showers.

The one of chosen to illustrate the month is about the flowers and is "Maig ha arribat, un jardí en cada prat" (May has arrived, there's a garden in every field).
