Read in Catalan

What a weekend for the Barça women's football team. A brilliant season was culminated on Saturday afternoon in the conquest of their third Champions League, 2-0 in the final over Olympique Lyonnais. And then Jonatan Giráldez's players began a party of more than 24 hours that went from the San Mamés stadium in Bilbao all the way to Barcelona, specifically to Plaça Sant Jaume, where the team formally presented all four of the trophies they have won this season to the political dignitaries, Catalan president Pere Aragonès and Barcelona mayor Jaume Collboni - and greeted the fans, eager to honour their champions, who filled the plaça. Here are the best images of the celebrations in the Catalan capital, and a few choice images of the victory hours earlier in Bilbao.

Players greet fans from the balcony of the Palau 

Barça women address their fans from the balcony of the Palau de la Generalitat, and all kinds of chants were heard as well as a few croaky voices after a night in which sleep was not the priority.

Bilbao turns 'blaugrana'

It was the culmination of a weekend that began on Saturday with a blaugrana (blue and crimson) tide filling Bilbao, host city to the final. Off the pitch, Barça was already ahead of their French rivals, because the culers once again made the difference with massive, energetic support.  

Bilbao will always be a special city for Barcelona fans, where a historic women's Champions League was won: not only was it the team's third title, but also because of the way they did it and almost everything about this very special final, culmination of a near-perfect season.
