Giant's Day

5 March will be the tallest day of the year! The third Edition of Poble Espanyol Giant’s Day features 9 giants clubs that will fill the streets and squares of the Village to the sound of the “gralla” (Catalan instrument).

Apart from the large and small giants and the big heads, there will be Catalan stick dancing and traditional dance groups, and children will have the chance to wear a big head!

An enjoyable day that will allow locals from Barcelona and visitors to see one of the most deeply-rooted Catalan traditions at closer range.
