Halloween traditions in Barcelona

Halloween is known in Barcelona as ”Dia de Los Muertos”, but Spanish kids also go out „trick or treating” (in Spain known as truco o trato), people dress up, watch horrors and enjoy this anglo-saxe festival. The 1st of November is a public holiday called „Todos Los Sants” in Catalonia. This is a typical day for spending time with your family and friends and going together to graves to give honor to loved ones. But also Catalonian have their local celebration called „Castanyada”, a festival with Catholic origins, which includes roast chestnuts, small marzipan cakes, and a sweet local wine known as Moscatel.

Another “tradition” that might be the most interesting for an Erasmus student is of course partying. Below we collected the best party options for you for a crazy spooky halloween night in our beloved Barcelona, so keep reading! 😉
