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.
Every year, the Festimatge marks the end of winter and the beginning of spring. 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 International Choir Festival. 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.
The organization has announced a new date for the event initially scheduled for the 17th of May, which will now take place on the 4th of October, 2020 coinciding with the IM Barcelona International Triathlon.See more
May comes to Calella full of joy and vitality. The days are longer and we love enjoying the good weather by taking a walk or going out for a vermouth in the sun. In the spring, Calella becomes a continuous stage with activities and proposals for all tastes, and for music lovers, here comes the event of the season: the International Choir and Orquestra Festival.See more
