Barcelona Ablaze!

Placa Espanya, Barcelona, was ablaze last night as the week long celebrations of La Merce drew to a close.

La Merce went out in style with an hour long display of fireworks and music, as thousands of people packed into Placa Espanya and Ave Reina Maria Cristina. Coupled with the backdrop of MNAC (The Museum of National Art Barcelona) and Barcelona’s magic fountain, the fireworks display was spectacular. The sky above Mont Juic was filled with colour for approximately one hour as four rounds of fireworks were set off and shot high into the sky.

Accompanied with a mix of music the display provided for everybody, particularly those with young children! Next year can only be bigger and better!
