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 ratingSo much fun! Me and a friend did the tour alone as the others got lost and did not make it in time. It worked out for us because we got some extra time and were taken on a few extra stops on the tour.

    Our guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. He really made our tour that extra special

  • 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!

  • 5 star ratingWe enjoyed every minute and wanted more! We're a family of 5 (parents + 3 teens) and chose "Barcelona Sun & Segway" a little by chance - simply because they had a great rating and because you can book via WhatsApp, which is very convenient when you don't have a local phone line but only data. Kudos for that! We were not disappointed - on the contrary; we arrived early, not having had time for lunch, so... » Read More

  • 5 star ratingSegway Barcelona Great way to see the city of Barcelona especially on hot summer days! Would have done another segway tour but ran out of time. Tour guide had great historical information & willingly took photos of our family. Would definitely do it again when we return to Barcelona. Location of office was very close to Las Ramblas.

    Segways are easy to learn and fun to do for a long time.

  • 5 star ratingGreat time and introduction to Barcelona We were on a cruise and only in Barcelona for the day. It was about a 45 minute walk from the port but very doable. Our guide, Lisa, gave us a great personalized tour showing us all the highlights. We hope to return to Barcelona in the not too distant future and do the Segway tour to Montserrat.
