September 11th

Mu and Joana.That's your opinion and of course you're fully entitled to it.
Personally, though, I'm not a great fan of nationalism in any shape or form and if I can,I always leave town if La Diada or even La Merce falls around the weekend.

@Phil, it will never be overshadowed by the Americans, 9/11! It's two different perspectives, and in Catalunya it's Focused on Catalan culture and language!

I have experienced the great feeling of shared pride and history a couple of times now and find it a really powerful and invigorating day. As an English visitor, I am struck by the lack of similar days in England and feel we are the poorer for it
