Some ideas for going out and events in Barcelona in March 2024


Festa de Sant Medir - From 1st to 10th March 2024.  The legend of Sant Medir dates back to the early 4th century. According to tradition, Medir was a farmer who lived near Barcelona, in the area now known as Sant Cugat del Vallès. He was arrested for helping the bishop of Barcelona, Saint Sever, to escape Roman persecution of the Christians. Barcelona celebrates the Festa de Sant Medir on 3 March in various parts of the city, including Gracia. Known as the festival of sweets, this event draws crowds with processions of horses and floats, distributing around six tonnes of sweets. It's a unique family festival marked by joy and indulgence. Festa de Sant Medir

Born three years before the maestro's death, the young Mozart made this arrangement at the request of an important Freemason patron: Gottfried van Swieten, who, enamoured of Handel's oratorios, would later also work on the librettos of Joseph Haydn's two oratorios based on texts by John Milton: The Creation and The Seasons. Gran Teatre del Liceu
