Trick or treat. In the case of Barcelona we should say Halloween or Castañada, or better, Halloween and Castañada. Some fusion has taken place, but in this case the outside tradition is the one that has taken the lead. It is enough to go to a supermarket to see the spaces dedicated to Halloween: among the pumpkins, skulls, witches and other elements more typical of Halloween you can find the local elements: chestnuts, sweet potatoes and panellets. And speaking of tradition, it wouldn't hurt to go to a chestnut and sweet potato stall (here an list official, it's from 2021 but it's the most current we have found) and then buy some panellets in one of these bakeries. In any case, be very scared and have a great time!

Here you will find a list of the most important activities in which you can participate on the eve of All Saints' Eve and, some of them, even more days:
