One of the highlights of early October in the Barcelona area is without doubt the Festa Major de Sarrià, which in 2018 is celebrated between Friday 28th September and Sunday 7th October.
If you're in Barcelona, it's well-worth taking the Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat out to Sarrià to enjoy the fun.
The festival begins with the Pregó, Toc d'Inici and a small Cercavila or Procession on Friday 30th September, which is followed by a busy first weekend with concerts. street food and the Trobada de Gegants among other things.
The atmosphere is a little more sedate throughout the week but there's still plenty going on until the climax with the Saints' Day of La Mare de Déu del Roser on Friday and the events of the final weekend.
The Festa closes on Sunday with a Procession of Horse-Drawn Vehicles and an impressive Firework Display on Sunday October 7th.
