If you happen to be in Barcelona in early April, the neighbourhood of Gràcia celebrates the "Revolt of the Quinta of 1870" and the colla de trabucaires de Gràcia and a few others invited from other towns offer a loud and rowdy show at the Plaça de la Revolució, one of its main squares. This show is offered within an open-air theatrical performance -shown in the video- commemorating the popular uprising occurred in 1870 as a result of a forced attempt of conscription by the Spanish army in Gràcia and neighbouring towns. The siege lasted six days resulting in several deaths and indiscriminate looting of many homes.
