If you can spend your Halloween in the wonderful city of Barcelona, in Spain; then, you should know that it may become your most memorable Halloween.
In Barcelona, there is a local festival called La Castanyada. This event is celebrated on 31st October, the same day as Halloween. Therefore, you may not get to enjoy the typical Halloween party, but we must tell you that this event is going to be remarkable.
Just like Halloween, La Castanyada has originated from the rites carried out before Day of the Dead (All Saints’ Day). You will find your favorite food at the time of All Saints Day in Barcelona, Castanyes and Panellets. Castanyes are roasted chestnuts, and panellets are typical traditional sweets, made mainly of marzipan (a paste made of almonds and sugar); the most popular ones are the panellets covered with pine nuts.
