Caramelles in Súria

20/04/2019 - 21/04/2019 Súria

Caramelles, traditional songs sung at Easter, are one of the most deeply-rooted traditions celebrated in Súria. Do you want to find out more about them?

When you arrive in the town, you will immediately realise that the caramelles are different in Súria. They are characterised by combining the songs with the Ball de Bastons (a dance with sticks) and bells and they have distinguishing personalities. The blunderbuss bearers accompany the singers with the sound of their blunderbusses. The lloques (singers chosen for the fair) are responsible for collecting gifts from the public. And the crossbow men carry an extensible wooden tool. If you are lucky enough to watch the caramelles from a balcony, they may throw you a flower!

The caramelles (traditional songs sung at Easter) in Sant Julià de Vilatorta have a history of more than 400 years. Would you like to listen to them?

The Terrazel in Sant Llorenç d'Hortons

El Terrazel a Sant Llorenç d'Hortons
10/08/2019 Sant Llorenç d'Hortons

A performance with deep traditional roots that takes place on the night of 10th August, feast of Saint Lawrence of Rome, representing the struggle between the forces of nature and man's destruction of them. 

Where?

Sant Llorenç d'Hortons streets

Tel. 93 771 60 00

The performance starts with the Dance of Mother Earth and the Sun, and is then joined by sprites, allegorical figures, then by Llengot –the dragon of a thousand chimneys-, the fire-wielding Llambrants, and the magical Unicorn. 
A touch of humour is provided by the figure of the Buscarrons, a cynical character whose desire is to cause havoc and make the surroundings as filthy as possible. The struggle ends with the victory of the earth and nature.

Moià Fruit Tree Festival

17/08/2019 Moià

The Festa Major (Main Festival) of Moià has faithfully included one particular event since 1905: the Fruit Tree Festival. Come and discover it!

“They who love trees love people”. This was the slogan used by the Moià-born tenor Francesc Viñas when he created the first Fruit Tree Festival in 1905. He wanted to foster the protection of nature through the collective ritual of planting fruit trees. The celebration, which coincides with the town’s Festa Major, has remained unaltered. In March, local children plant trees in an area close to the town and in August, a well-known Catalan personality attends a planting ceremony to commemorate the creation of the festival.

The Golden Goat Festival

08/08/2019 - 09/08/2019 Moià

Born from a legend, Moià's Golden Goat Festival explains the discovery of a treasure.

Legend has it that if you find the golden goat you will be blessed with superhuman strength and exceptional virility. The night before the Golden Goat Festival, the people of Moià go to Clarà Castle to look for this figure, transforming the event into a night-time game. The following day, they take the goat down to the town and hand it over to the feudal lord, who requested it in exchange for giving up the droit du seigneur with the most beautiful maidens. However his greed is greater than his promise and the locals of the town punish him by stoning him. Alas, he is made of cardboard!

Vilazari 978

30/06/2017 - 01/07/2017 Vilassar de Dalt

Vilazari was the name given to Vilassar de Dalt when it was founded in 978. There is now a festival that commemorates its origins.

 

.

It is called the Vilazari 978 Festival. Vilazari because of the original name by which Vilassar de Dalt was known and 978 for the year that appears in the document that gives this name. The festival aims to inform people about the original history of the town by means of chats, workshops, meals and a mediaeval market. However, the main attraction of the festival is, without a doubt, the reason why it was created: the opening to the public of Vilassar de Dalt Castle. It consists of a 10th century building with a Gothic appearance.
