The youth quarter in Barcelona, mostly populated by the bohemian, every summer becomes a carnival and bright scenery place for the week.
Annually, in the Gracia quarter almost all the inhabitants of Barcelona come together to break free until dawn on thematically decorated streets.
For 200 years, the residents of the Gracia area have been eagerly preparing for the annual Fiesta Mayor de Gracia. During a week, people dance until dawn, drink beer in street bars and choose a street that will win by its decoration.
Closer to the night, a special cocktail Ron Cremat (Roasted Rum) with lemon peel, spices and coffee beans starts to prepare here.
