Festivity of Santa Eulalia in Barcelona

In honor of Saint Eulàlia, one of Barcelona’s two patron saints, the streets fill with giants, music and entertainment. In addition to traditional celebrations, you can enjoy the LLUM BCN Festival. The installations have been created by students and teachers of graphic design, interior design, lighting and architecture schools in Barcelona. The festival also benefits from the participation of the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) and the Professional Association of Lighting Designers (APDI), as well as other groups and celebrated artists.
