...because of the spectacular fiesta de Sant Juan in Menorca...

..Menorca, 24 June.  Fiesta de Sant Juan. Throughout Cataluña this is a big festival. In Ciutadella in Menorca they have their own traditon called the 'Jaleo'. There are many events which lead up to the official procession of riders through the city to the Mayoral Office where they display their riding skill and receive blessing for the Equestrian Games which follow. It is a melee of hooves and heads and astonishingly, no-one lost an eye!! Spectacular!

...because of the Barcelona shrine of wine...

... called Monvínic.  It is a temple of wine, about wine and for wine.  It is a place to explore and study and enjoy wine from all over the world.  The staff have an amazing knowledge and are happy to lead you on a global wine adventure tour... without leaving the comfort of the restaurant.

...because the streets of Sitges are paved with flowers...

 from 1887, the residents of Sitges pave their streets in floral carpets in celeberation of the feast of Corpus Christi. (And the start of summer). Que bonito!
