Montblanc Medieval Festival (Catalonia)

A Lord from The Montblanc Medieval Festival

 

A few weeks ago, I was visiting one of the most important medieval festivals in Catalonia. For two weeks, the ancient streets and squares of Montblanc, a well-preserved medieval town with an entire set of walls and towers, are festooned with the colors of four noble houses and embellished with the noble flags and standards.

There are many performances around the city with warriors, parades, popular dances, and different artisans to show you how those days used to be. You can delight yourself with a delicious medieval banquet or simply enjoy strolling around the city.

However, the most important act is the performance of Saint George and the Dragon legend, performed by local actors and actresses, in which the Saint kills a dragon and saves the Princess from death.
