Let the party begin at the Fires de Girona!
Girona is in full "fiesta" mode! The patron saint of Girona is Saint Narcis and to celebrate there are multiple events held all over town for the next week. The inaugural ceremony takes place in front of the Town Hall with the dancing of the giants, music and a few speeches. The giants are legendary figures from Gironas past such as King Carlemany and Queen Anna of Gironella who dance together surrounded by their loyal subjects.
Adolescents head straight for the Devesa Park where there are more contemporary attractions on offer like a fairground and cheap booze stands with a stage for bands to play until the early hours of the morning and since today the schools of Girona are on holiday the weekend has begun early.
Also on offer are a firework dance around town, the famous human castles and plenty of street stands selling all sorts of foods and art. If you are in party mood then head to Girona now!
