La Laia

Laia is a gegantona (little giant) created in 1998 to depict Santa Eulàlia, a child martyr who stood up to the Roman Empire at the end of the fourth century. The winter "festa major" that Barcelona celebrates in her name is dedicated to the children of Barcelona and many activities are organized for them. Although not at all sure what all the fuss was about, Marina certainly enjoyed watching these super giant gegantons and gegants parade and dance throughout the old town.
