A group of actors and directors have decided a kulurelles Festival at that time to create, which combines so many aspects of the theater as possible. The first Festival was held in the “Teatre Grec”, in the vicinity of the mountain of Montjuic in Barcelona (South of the city).

Over the years, many visitors have deliberately booked a hotel in Barcelona or a holiday apartment in Barcelona in the close of the Festival. The Teatre Grec is a reconstruction of the Greek amphitheater, which was built in the mountain of Montjuic. At the first Festival, this was the only venue. Today is He the largest but not the only one. This year the Grec Festival from 13 June to 2 August, and will enrich the cultural life of Barcelona with 45 different events.
