La Festa de la Mercè

"The ancient processions through the city were full of magical figures with a strong symbolic significance: the dragon, the image of the devil; the giants, a representation of the heroes and historical figures; the eagle, the symbol of political power. All these figures have lasted in one form or another, and are still paraded in the Festival as the true myths of Barcelona." - from bcn.es
