The Patum

The Patum

The Patum involves moments of mystery, happiness, passion, joy… Describing this event, listed as intangible cultural heritage by UNSCO, is no easy task; you just have to experience it. Are you up for it?

Its origins lie in mediaeval plays in which devils and beasts danced in the firelight, entranced by the constant beat of drums. The Patum does not just consist of groups and dances, known in Catalan as salts (leaps), but also of all the people who come together to dance in Plaça de Sant Pere. It is when the square is absolutely jam-packed that the feelings of mystery, joy, passion and belonging all combine. This is the special way of celebrating the Feast of Corpus Christi in Berga.
