Catalan traditions in summer: The “Sardinada” grilled sardines.

Summer nights in the Coast of Barcelona.

Grilled sardines in the Catalan Beach.

Summer nights in the Coast of Barcelona are specials. The hot weather invites people to seat outside, in terraces, beach bars and cozy and cool places, often with live music and decorated with soft and small lights to create a nice atmosphere.

One of the most popular Catalan traditions during summer time is to prepare a “Sardinada”, grilled sardines by the sea in a beach bar. The smell coming from the grilled sardines attract many people walking next to the place. Sardines are eaten with “pa amb tomàquet”, bread with spread tomato and olive oil.

The “Sardinada” is the most awaited of the summer feasts. Often some beach bar, organise some live music to be enjoyed during the dinner.  In Catalonia seafarers and people working in coastal villages, had special singing, which came from the old colonies, specially from Cuba. We are talking about “Habanera”. Nowadays the are performed by small choral groups formed by men, and sometimes accompanied by a guitar. Love, sea and seafarers are the perfect lyrics to been listened during a “Sardinada”
