19th national meeting ‘dels Tres Tombs’

Barcelona has the pattern of the guilds of the cartwrights and Coachmen, the porters and mules rental.
Of the because of the name of the feast of “Els Tres Tombs” (three turns), there are versions for all tastes.

  • In some versions they assume were turns the rider performing with his mount on the hind legs of his horse as a test of skill in front of the chaplain officiating the blessing.
  • Others believed that turns were made around a cross close to the place of the blessing, in the convent of San Antonio (current round of Sant Antoni).
  • Another version replaces the cross by a block of houses where it was the convent.

In any case, we were there.
