La Mercè 2015

You’ve several years celebrating the Merce Festival Barcelona and you don’t know who is the Mercè and where it is? We show this mystery to you!

La Mercè is the Virgin of Mercy and she is the patron virgin of Barcelona city. We have made a little tour and we have found the Virgin in the Basilica of Our Lady of Mercy and Saint Michael the Archangel (Basílica de Nuestra Señora de la Merced y San Miguel Arcángel) know as The Basilica of Our Lady of Mercy (Basílica de la Merced). It is located in the Merced square in the gothic quarter of Barcelona.

The Barcelona Merce festival 2015 dates are Friday 18th September to Thursday 24th September 2015. La Festa Major de la Mercè is a festival by everyone and for everyone.

A classic of this celebration are the projections on the City Hall Façade. You can dance with La Mercè’s soundtrack in the different concerts and stages in the city like the Parc del Forum which is a stone’s throw away from Hotel Barcelona Princess.

If you prefer to relax, enjoy fireworks in The International Firework Competition and in the Merce Piromusical from the terrace of The Gym Bar or Princess Crown with a cocktail in hand.
