Fire and gunpowder are essential elements in Barcelona’s festa major, particularly during the famous Correfoc. Everyone wants to take part in this spectacle, even younger children. So that they can do so without danger, every year a family version of this great festival of re takes place, using lower-intensity reworks. This scaled-down version is the best way for young participants to get their rst taste of what is an abso- lutely Mediterranean celebration.
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 / 8.30 PM Via Laietana /Av. de la Catedrall
Where does the Correfoc come from? From Hell itself. Don’t believe us? Well, all you need to do is to be there when the reworks go o outside the great gate that is installed right across Via Laietana. As the last explo- sion rings out, the gates of the underworld will open. Does it smell of sul- phur? No, just the gunpowder that devils, re beasts and all sorts of evil creatures bring with them, ready to begin their route around the streets of the city centre. But be warned: this year, Hell’s Gate will be even more spectacular than ever.
