Santa Tecla 2014 – day 3

There is gentler side to the Santa Tecla festivities in Tarragona which is provided by an evening of Catalan folk dance re-enactments at  Plaça de la Font.

And if you thought Catalan dance was just Sardanas think again.

Folk dances in Catalonia were mainly held in open spaces and would have been likely to take place in the main public squares  like the front of the town hall. The choreography is quite complex and some of the dances relate to ancient ceremonies and different part of the country.
