We participated in the Festival Barcelona Vive México 2016!
On 17th and 18th September was held the Barcelona Vive Mexico Festival 2016. This sixth edition was held in the magnificent structures in the Poble Espanyol near the Castle of Montjuïc.
It is the biggest Mexican festival of Europe that aims to celebrate the national holiday of Mexico, the independence. Mexico's independence began on the night of September 15, 1810, after the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla hoisted a banner with the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, patroness of the Mexican people, and ask people to fight for independence from Spain.
Here are some pictures of this joyous festival:
