Havaneres Singing 2019
Calella de Palafrugell
With the arrival of the summer, the Costa Brava region moves to the nostalgic and beautiful rhythm of havaneres or colonial shanties. Many open air concerts are held in various Coastal towns featuring Catalan groups who perform songs that were brought back from the Caribbean in the 19th century and that have become firmly established in popular Catalan culture. For an amazing stay on the Costa Brava, BE APARTMENT offers you the most elegant Luxury Apartments in various towns of the Coast.
The most eagerly awaited performance is, without a doubt, the Havaneres Singing in Calella de Palafrugell, held on July 6 this summer. These concert, held every first Saturday in July since 1966, are one of the major tourist events on the Costa Brava. With its beautiful white houses, the town of Calella de Palafrugell retains all the charm of an old fishing village. Many people visit the town for the concerts and where the stage is set up in the cove of Portbò, you can sea lots of boats, because local people love seeing the show from the water! Don´t forget to have a look at the Havanera Market, set up in Plaça de l'Església (Church Square).
One of the main gastronomic offers of Havaneres Singing is famous cremat (rum flambéed with coffee), the ideal drink to accompany popular Havaneres such as La bella Lola (Beautiful Lola) or El meu avi (My Grandfather), 2 classics that always have people singing.
