Halloween in Barcelona: outstanding activities

Special

Trick or Treating. In the case of Barcelona we should say Halloween or Castanyada, although it seems that Halloween has won. Some fusion has taken place but in this case the external tradition is the one that has taken the leading role. Just go to a supermarket to see the spaces dedicated to Halloween: among the pumpkins, skulls, witches and other elements typical of Halloween you can find local elements: chestnuts, sweet potatoes and "panellets". And speaking of tradition, it would not be bad if you go to a chestnut and sweet potato stall (here is a list, it is from 2017 but it is the most current that we have found) and then buy some panellets in one of these patisseries.

Here you will find a list of the most outstanding activities (or should we say, the few that are going to be held) in which you can participate on the eve of all Saints and, some, even more days:
