Today marks the start of the festival of La Mercè, the patron saint of Barcelona. The city gears up for a big party for just four days. This year, the extensive party schedule includes very diverse offers for all types of people - from the multitudinous BAM and Mercè Música concerts to the screenings on emblematic facades, artistic offers for families, open doors in museums and a broad offer of popular culture. In addition, this edition reinforces the decentralization of stages and security to take the big party, which has Reykjavik as the guest city, to all the Barcelonians.
The opening speech of Marina Garcés will kick start today's evening, Friday, 22nd September, and a very emotional pyrotechnic and musical event will draw the curtains on the 2017 edition on the night of Monday, the 25th.
The festive figures of Barcelona, giants and bastoners shall come out of the Virreina palace today for inaugurating the festival. The attendees may snack on bread with chocolate and enjoy the first dance at the Sant Jaume square, which shall host the first show of bastoners, fireworks and music of the Ministrils del Camí Ral after the opening speech. This shall be followed by the parade of fire dragons and beasts in the Gòtic barrio at around 21:30 hours, though this time without any firecrackers.
Several museums and cultural centers in Barcelona shall have open door shows and special activities on offer throughout the weekend, especially on Sunday, the 24th, the day of the La Mercè. Some of the participants are the Palau Güell, the Joan Miró and Antoni Tàpies foundations, the MNAC, the CosmoCaixa and CaixaFòrum centers, the Pedralbes monastery, the Barcelona and Catalonia history museums, the Archeology Museum, the Picasso Museum, the MACBA and the CCCB, the Botanical Garden and the DHUB Design Museum.
