La Castanyada 2013
From 31/10/2013 To 01/11/2013
La Castanyada is similar to Halloween in English speaking countries. It is celebrated on the evening before and on the day of All Saintsí Day, though it is not the same as a celebration of Saintís Day, the two events coincide.
The name Castanyada comes from the traditional treats of castanyes (roast chestnuts) consumed along with moniatos (roast sweet potatoes) and panellets (small almond balls covered in pine nuts). The castanyes and moniatos are cooked on coal braziers in the street. At this time of year you will find street vendors offering them all over Barcelona and these are perfect to keep out any early Autumn chill (not that there is much of this in Barcelona!).
