Do you feel like partying and also see some culture? Well make sure you pay a visit to the Sant Narcís Fair and Festival (Fires de Sant Narcís), the main festival of the province of Girona where lays the region of Costa Brava. With autumn in full swing, the temperature in the city seems to rise a notch or two with the joy emanating from the citizens of Girona and the many visitors who don't want to miss out on all the fun. The whole city becomes a hive of non-stop activity from the moment the festival's opening speech is pronounced.
If you want to experience the more traditional side of Sant Narcís, the parade of gegants (giant papier mâché figures whose carriers are completely hidden inside) and capgrossos (large papier mâché heads worn on the carriers’ heads) is highly recommended, as is the correfoc (fire run), sardana dancing or diada castellera (human towers). Also, you really have to visit the nerve centre of the festival, in the park of La Devesa in Girona. The park's avenues of plane trees are taken over by fairground attractions and the historical Trade Fair, a showcase for the latest industrial, farming and consumer products.
If you're looking for some nightlife, "La Copa" is the place for you, with free concerts every night and plenty of entertainment for night owls in the barraques zone. You can also go dancing in other venues such as the "Envelat", where typical festival groups perform.
You'll find plenty of other recommendations in the programme as well: children's shows, film and theatre events, exhibitions, sports competitions, roast chestnut feasts (castanyadas) and little arts and crafts stalls in the old quarter of Girona. The best thing about Fires de Sant Narcís is that you can come and enjoy it all your way! Do not miss this opportunity to enjoy Costa Brava and get to know the region better with Homes in Blue!
