La Mercè 2019

Every year, around September 24th, Barcelona celebrates La Mercè, patron saint of the city, and its Festa Major. A festival of festivals, it draws together between 1.500.000 and 2.000.000 people during its week-long run. Festivities, cultural and artistic, take place throughout the city in differing public spaces.

La Mercè transforms Barcelona into a grand stage bursting with fantasy and imagination. creativity is the driving force behind it, traditions its roots, and music an
outstanding voice. over 600 activities and shows go on during the week with more than 2000 artists and professionals taking part.
The wide artistic endeavour embodies the city’s values. a key element is the involvement of a large number of local groups and associations, with spon- sorship and collaboration from private companies. all events are free.
La Mercè aims to be a reflection of the city itself – enterprising, creative and inventive. Barcelona is a city moving forward with a search for innovation and evolution. the Festival manages to maintain its qual- ity while at the same time it is searching for and pre- senting new trends.

The artists invited to perform at La Mercè are a sample of the city itself (Barcelona being an international meeting point with an 18% immigrant population). They are chosen from the current best shows and performances.
In 2009 alone, artists came from all over the world: Russia, Morocco, the United States of America, China, Brazil, Cuba, Turkey, Pakistan, Australia, Sweden, Algeria, Canada…

La Mercè has an artistic program, with street theatre as the outstanding feature. Dance, circus, bands, fringe, and touring shows make up the bulk of the events; in the evenings, large format installations that combine light and new technology are integrated with fire traditions and pyrotechnic displays.

All in all, it is a proposal of public nature that not only wants to get the magic of performance closer to peo- ple’s differing interests, but also to try more risky, daring and challenging artistic experiences.
This major artistic event has consolidated Barcelo- na’s position over the last years as the perfect meet- ing point for programmers and artists, and in this way has become one of the best stages on which to see some of the most brilliant artistic expression of the moment, right at the beginning of the season.

  • 5 star ratingGreat fun in the sun! We had the 3hrs Segway trip to Montjuic and our guide Oscar did a great job! One of us had never tried Segway before so I got an introduction. It was quick and easy to learn. After a while you hardly notice how you actually start and stop! It was a terrific way to see the sights. Because it was a very hot day the air we got when driving... » Read More

  • 5 star ratingA great way to see the city The check-in and pre-tour training was thorough and enjoyable. Safety was taken very seriously. Our tour guide, Fede, was excellent. He had great knowledge of the features of the city and answered all of the six-person group's questions well, and with an fine sense of humour. He took great care to make sure everyone was coping well with the segway itself and the traffic conditions.

    We saw areas of Barcelona we...

  • 5 star ratingGreat Segway with Tom We booked a Segway tour with Tom. Fantastic way to see the city, traveling 20km! Tom was enthusiastic and shared his knowledge of the city. We had plenty of photo opportunities and it was fun riding the cycle ways and occasionally on the road! Thanks Tom

  • 5 star ratingGreat fun way to see the sights We had a really great trip by Lisa, she was fun and knowledgable. This was our first time on a Segway and they made sure we were confident before heading out on the streets. A really unique way of seeing the sights and you can cover a lot of ground on the Segway’s. They provided us with water ( it was a super hot day ) and a few little... » Read More

  • 5 star ratingGreat trip with amazing views! After researching a few Segway places on trip advisor I found this one to be the most reasonable. Very central meeting around and friendly staff! We were taken up to Montjuïc by Oscar, he is clearly passionate about his job and very knowledgeable about the city. The segways were very easy to use and it was the highlight of the trip for us!
