Merce Festes Barcelona History History

The history of this Spanish Festival are rooted in the changeover of the Autumn Solstice. The reason for the Virgin of Mercy to command this Spanish Fiesta is as a "thank you" for the miracles she has performed for Barcelona: namely defeating a swarm of locusts over 300 years ago as well as acting as Commander in Chief of the Catalan's city Defence force.
