Usually at the end of the first week of January, Barcelona celebrates the Tres Tombs Festival, in honour of the patron saint of animals, Sant Antoni. The actual Saint´s day is the 17th January and there are many parties surrounding the date. At the Tres Tombs Festival, you will see several horse processions and the blessing of animals by priests. Taking place in the Sant Andreu and Eixample districts of Barcelona, as well as the Vilanova area (around 40 minutes by train from Barcelona), this interesting display of animal appreciation is something you do not want to miss.
