With streets abundantly decorated and Christmas markets all over town, there's no denying that locals love to celebrate Christmas season. And Christmas in Barcelona doesn't just run for two nights long, it runs for a whole month! Check out what's on this season and enjoy Christmas as the locals do:
Fira de Santa Llúcia
There's no more traditional way than to visit this annual market during Christmas season. This year, as it holds its 231st anniversary, stalls will be packed again showcasing the best of artesanal home decorations as the locals love to have it. Lights, wooden carved figures, decorated trees, this market is a feast for the eye and so is its setting: right in the middle of the historic city centre.
Christmas at Casa Amatller
Prefer to be inside during the cold Christmas season? Casa Amatller, the iconic piece of art by famous modernist architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch won't dissapoint you! This year you can enjoy some beautiful Christmas-themed home decor and various activities, such as choirs offered by the Music academy of Catalonia. Casa Amatller is located on the prominent street of Paseo de Gracia. If you are already there, why not visit the landmark Casa Battlo right next to it?
Christmas at Placa de Catalunya
Placa de Catalunya had always been known for its prominent Christmas lights, but there's so much more to see and unlock at this square!
