Stroll around Gràcia's decorated streets

Posted on Thursday, August 19, 2010 by Natxo

This nice bloke welcomes the visitors to the festival! Scared? 
I went for a quick tour this morning in the streets of Gràcia to enjoy and admire the decoration on streets and squares.
Starting the route at Plaça de la Vila de Gràcia, formerly known as Plaça Rius i Taulet (plaça meaning square) you'll find a guardian (pictured above) that will probably kindly let you in a some sort of a castle full of witches, bats, spiders and a dead loving couple. Sounds scary but wait, they're are all statues!

Don't miss the castellers on Sunday 22 at 12.00 in Plaça de la Vila, this year's Annual Human Tower Festival, where the following teams will be competing: Xiquets de Tarragona, Xicots de Vilafranca and Castellers de la Vila de Gràcia. See the map here.

Next, going up Verdi street to see the winner of the street decoration awards!
