Mercat Medieval de Vic / Vic’s Medieval Market

Cada año en Vic, una ciudad a una hora de Barcelona, se celebra una interesante Mercado Medieval… Esta es la primera vez que voy y seguro que repetiré, porque me gustó muchísimo! Es mil veces más grande de lo que imaginaba (abarca todo el centro) y hay cientos de paradas de los típicos embutidos locales, barbacoas, vino caliente, juegos para los niños, dulces, panes y más. Lo mejor es la representación de un pueblo del Siglo XV  llamado Mercadal V.O que hay a la entrada del casco antiguo, debajo de los puentes de piedra. Pagas 3 euros, o más bien cambias, por 3 monedas “antiguas” que puedes usar dentro para comprar pollos asados, costillas, panes con queso, vino hipocrático, sopas, hierbas etc. Vecinos de Vic reciben clases de teatro para interpretar a los personajes de la época y la verdad es que lo hacen genial. Aún tengo los maravillosos olores a leña y a postres recién horneados en la nariz!

Every year in Vic, a city one hour away from Barcelona, an interesting Medieval Market is held… This is my first time there and I’m sure that I’ll go again, because I loved it! Es thousands of times bigger than I expected (it goes through all the city center) and there is hundreds of stands with the typical local sausages, barbecues, hot wine, games for the children, pastries, breads and more. The best thing is the representation of a 15th Century town called Mercadal V.O placed at the entrance of the old quarter, beneath the old stone bridges. You have to pay 3 euros, or should I say change them for “old” coins that you can use inside to buy roasted chickens, ribs, cheese breads, hipocratic wine, soups, herbs, etc. Neighbors of Vic take theatre classes to act like the people of that time and the truth is that they do it amazingly! I still have in my nose the wonderful smell of wood smoke and pastries just taken out of the oven!

    Ok so I know this is in Spanish, but I am minoring in it, so here’s a summary of what this blogger is saying- He went to the Medieval Market in Vic (a city outside Barcelona) for the first time, and he loved it. There were lots of things to look at and foods to eat. I wish I was there right now!
