The square itself is made up of 3 different buildings. The first is the Tinell room which was commissioned in the 14th Century by King Pedro, the second is the Royal Chapel of St. Agatha built a little earlier at the very beginning of the 14th Century on behalf of King James of Aragon, it is an extension of the famous cathedral and has an alterpiece inside which was painted by the Jaime Huguet. The third and final building is The Palace of Lloctinet which was built by King Carlos, later in 1549.

Carnestoltes is Catalunya's equivalent of Mardi Gras or Pancake Day but it takes place over a weekend from the 11th to the 15th of February. It is the last chance people get to eat, drink and be merry before the Christian tradition of abstaining during the period of lent. The 11th is named 'Fat Thursday' setting the tone for a weekend ahead of gorging and enjoying yourself before you bury sardines on the Wednesday, a tradition which symbolises the beginning of the fasting. There is often a grand street parade on the Saturday and of course Shrove Tuesday is not forgotten where everyone eats the classic, pancakes.

That is why we would like to invite you to Carnival in Barcelona. This is one is the life chance to take part in best party in Barcelona. This year the carnival starts in February and the city has prepared lots of attractions for this occasion.
The tradition of carnival started in 1333, but the greatest splendour is recorded for the 19th century. During Franco dictatorship the tradition was prohibited, that is probably why nowadays Spanish people pay such a great attention to those festive days.

On the 17th of January all of the Barcelona Pets are dominating the pavements and with their owners are taking part in Cabalgata dels Tres Tombs - the St Anthony's Day. The "special guests" are not only cats and dogs, as one could presume - there are also donkeys, mules and other unusual "pets". StAntothony is the patron of animals, so on his day a special parade is organised every year to bless the domestic animals in different parts of the city. The biggest celebrationis located in St Andreu and the second big takes place in Exiample. As every Barcelona parade the Cabalgata dels Tres Tombs is full of extraordinary events. Of caurse there are giant costumes, sardana (typical Catalan dance), castellers (acrobats build a "human pyramids") and a lot of fun! The parade starts naturally on the Ronda Sant Antoni continues through Plaça Universitat and down Pelaio to reach finally Plaça Catalunya.

The Procession of the Three Kings (Cabalgata los Reyes Magos) it is a typicall spanish tradition, but in Barcelona it is something very special. On the 5th January in the afternoon the Caspar, Melchior and Baltasar come to Barcelona with the Santa Eulalia Boat to the Beach. Than they are "wandering" trough the city (the parade route is about 5 km long) distributing 15 tones of sweets (!) and other gifts for children. Cavalcade is an event for the whole family. The total of 875 people are taking part in the parade, dressed up withfabulous costumes. The costumes and heroes of the parade are wonderfully colourful and somehow magical, to understand what does it mean you have to see it! During the parade the children's letters to the three kings will be collected (in Spain they are much more important than Santa Claus, because traditionally kids get presents not on the 6th December, but on the 5th of January).
