La Mercè embraces the city’s neighbourhoods

[ 06.09.17 ]

This year, Barcelona’s great popular festivity spreads all around the city, as the programme for La Mercè 2017 introduces new venues that will bring the celebrations to outlying neighbourhoods.

This is because, year after year, Barcelona’s Festa Major reaffirms the goal of reaching as many districts as possible, involving all the city’s neighbourhoods and the people who live there. The experience began last year, when La Trinitat Park was included as a venue for activities. La Trinitat is a large park still little known to the people of Barcelona, but with excellent Metro underground railway connections. At La Mercè 2016, the park hosted many of the activities related to new urban cultures on the programme.
