The Els Tres Tombs festival 2023
The Els Tres Tombs festival is a popular festival that takes place every year in the city of Barcelona, more precisely in the neighbourhood of Sant Antoni and Sant Andreu, in honour of the patron saint of animals San Antonio Abat. This tradition usually takes place on 17 January, and is a series of festivities typical of Catalonia on non-holiday days, which is why it is considered a celebration for children and young people leaving school in the early afternoon, especially during midweek days.
If you are in Barcelona during this period, participating in this popular tradition will be a way to totally immerse yourself in Spanish and Catalan culture, and to participate in something local and different, even and especially if you have your little ones with you: you will see carts drawn by white horses, witness animal blessings, taste typical local gastronomy and listen to traditional music.
