A bouquet of emotions
With spring, the flowers return. Calella is a Flower City and at that time, the city and its surroundings recover the green that was absent during the winter months. Everywhere the smell of nature permeates the air and lifts everyone´s spirit with its irresistible influence: the days become longer, the sun is more active and the Calellenses are always in the street, talking about the things to come.
Carpe Birrem, marks the beginning of spring, when the sun is already hot and cold and refreshing beer is what you desire most. The Festimatge, the audio-visual festival of Calella is in April, the month when the flowers represent Calella as in a postcard. Now that we talk about flowers, Saint George is the main protagonist. April 23 is when the most popular festival of Catalonia takes place: books and roses invade the streets to celebrate love, literature and love for literature.
May is one of the busiest months for the Calellenses. The singing of the birds can be heard at this time of year, but we also hear another type of singing, namely the unity of harmonic and sweet sounds during the gathering of choral singing On Stage. Although haunted by their melodies, as if it were a dream, the city is dressed in history with the “Fira de Calella Renaixentista” (the fair of Renaissance Calella), where the oldest traditions that exist become the protagonists for a few days.
Then there are those days where it is often hard to know if we are in spring or in summer. During the winter months the seawater is purified and becomes really transparent thanks to the winter and the first regular bathers come out to take a dip in its waters. Sea athletes take on windsurfing, canoes and paddle surfing tables, where beach volleyball is the King. With the arrival of the first tourists, the spring gives way to the most desired season of all: Summer.
Oktoberfest will take place for two weeks.See more
There is an expression that we like a lot in Calella: To do things the right way. These are words that make us think about the authenticity of handicrafts, traditional recipes and inherited trades. A phrase that most elderly people in Calella (and not so elderly) transmit to young people by example.See more
