The Twelfth Night parade in Barcelona (La Cabalgata de Los Reyes Magos) is a traditional event. It is one of the major winter attractions in Catalonia, just after Christmas and New Year.

This event is held, yearly, on the twelfth day from Christmas, on January 5th, on the Epiphany's evening. This day, according to the New Testament, indicates the arrival of the three Magus who were the first to worship Jesus and thus caused his revelation to the whole world.

The main events in Barcelona take place at the harbor and in the shopping center Moll de Fusta. The revelation is celebrated by thousands of locals together with lots of tourists, who gather to watch the arrival of the three magi approaching the harbor and welcomed with 21 gun salutes of the coast cannons and with plenty multicolored fireworks.

In addition, a colorful parade marches along the center roads of the city, completes the beautiful events.

Spain background and overview:
Spain's powerful world empire of the 16th and 17th centuries ultimately yielded command of the seas to England. Subsequent failure to embrace the mercantile and industrial revolutions caused the country to fall behind Britain, France, and Germany in economic and political power. Spain remained neutral in World Wars I and II, but suffered through a devastating civil war (1936-39). A peaceful transition to democracy following the death of dictator Francisco FRANCO in 1975, and rapid economic modernization (Spain joined the EU in 1986), have given Spain one of the most dynamic economies in Europe and made it a global champion of freedom. Continuing challenges include Basque Fatherland and Liberty (ETA) terrorism and relatively high unemployment.
