La Dansa de la Mort is performed in Verges, a small village north-west from Barcelona near Costa Brava shore, every year on the Easter Thursday night. The procession beats the drums, and performers start their scary dance in skeleton costumes that symbolise final judgement after death. This unusual dance gathers thousands of spectators who pay an admission fee​ to watch it.
