Santa Tecla

September is here and it is time to kick off the celebrations of Santa Tecla. From September 14th to the 24th, Tarragona dresses up to celebrate the most anticipated event of the year; the annual festival in celebration of its patron saint. Castellers, dances, concerts, correfocs, sardanas... invade the tranquillity of the city for a few days.
