As many of you know from Alan's blog, this past weekend we made it to Park Guell for the first time. While the park itsef is very large and very nice, the greatest treat was walking into a Catalan festival and watching dozens of people, young and old, performing the sardana.
This very traditional Catalan dance is performed every week in front of the cathedral in Barcelona and in many festivals by regular people rather than professional performers. I've been wanting to see it since I got here but wasn't sure when and where to go. Watching it with the city of Barcelona as a backdrop was unforgetable!
