    Hola a todos!!!

    Is there a site where I can find why in Cataluña they celebrate that day? I have the text in Spanish but I think I don't understand because to me it seems that they are celebrating the day Barcelona was destroyed!!! That can't be true, is it? So I need it in English, please...

    Thanks a lot!!!

    As far as I know, Barcelona has been never destroyed.
    El 11 de septiembre de 1714 las tropas de Felipe V entraron en la ciudad de Barcelona. Fue un episodio durante la Guerra de Sucesión en España, el útimo rey de la casa de Austria murió sin descendencia, y ocupó el trono de España el primer rey de la dinastía Borbón.

    Here you have an explanation in Catalan, Spanish, English and French.

    EDIT: I'm reading this website and has other information, so I'm going to quote what you exactly wanted to know:
