    Fira de Santa Llúcia

    La Fira de Santa Llúcia is a street market which has been held since at least 1786 in front of the Cathedral around Christmas time. You will find Christmas trees on sale there, as well as baubles, wreaths and mistletoe. However, the main attraction of this fair are the pieces used to set up the nativity scene: figurines, moss, the manger, fountains and the ineffable "caganer" that surprises us every year with new incarnations. During the Fair, there will be lots of activities and shows related to Christmas to enjoy, a tió gigante (giant man), dances and musical performances.

  • Descent of the Fallas FiaFaia in Bagà and Sant Julià de Cerdanyola

    Descent of the Fallas FiaFaia in Bagà and Sant Julià de Cerdanyola

    The areas of the Pre-Pyrenees and the Pyrenees hold a festival of fire in summer which has been declared as intangible UNESCO cultural Heritage. It involves local people descending with large burning torches (fallas) from the top of the mountain to the village at nightfall. A tradition with rural origins, this ritual is associated with the purification of the fields and woods in order to protect them from evil spirits. This festival has become a magic and light-filled event with mystical connotations featuring a primal light procession. The handmade torches are prepared by people in the village and some can weigh as much as 20 kilograms. Two towns in the area also celebrate this festival on Christmas Eve: Bagà and Sant Julià de Cerdanyola, and on this occasion the tradition is called "Fia-Faia".

We put together Nativity scenes, we beat a log with a smiley face, known as the tió, until gifts pop out from under him, we are visited by the home dels Nassos, or man with the noses, who has as many noses as there are days of the year, and we eat a type of nougat called turrón and tubular wafers, known as neules,... Come and discover them!
