The Sant Antoni de la Pobla bonfire festival is an annual three-day celebration that takes place in the Gràcia neighborhood of Barcelona each winter. The festival began in 1992, but is based on a much older festival from the island of Majorca. The Barcelona version features traditional music, performances, and food from both Majorca and Catalonia. The festival culminates in a night of bonfires and a spectacular procession of costumed revelers. The 2015 festival took place in the end of January.
