September is a big month for the Catalonian capital Barcelona. First, on September 11, Barcelona commemorates the fall of Barcelona and defeat of Catalunya to Felipe V in the War of Spanish Succession with La Diada. It’s not necessarily a festive celebration, but it’s considered Catalunya’s national day.
Later in the month, though, Barcelona celebrates its patron saint, La Mare de Déu de la Mercè, for a whole week with the la Mercè. Each day, there’s a parade, including giant papier mâché figures. Another tradition, declared a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, is the castells. Basically, competitive human tower-building.
Whether you want to commemorate La Diada or celebrate la Mercè or build a castell out of domain names even (not sure how that would work, though), we’re showing love for Barcelona this fall by putting .barcelona domains on sale for $25.00 per year (normally $85.46 at A rates)* starting September 1 until October 31, 2016 at 5:00 PM PST.
