Christmas plans in Barcelona

If Barcelona is beautiful in itself, imagine visiting it at Christmas. From Grums Hotel&Spa we propose you plans to enjoy the most Christmas and magical atmosphere of the city.

Christmas lights

Although all the neighbourhoods have their own personalised lights, we recommend you visit the ones in the city centre, especially those in the famous Passeig de Gràcia, where the decoration is based on butterflies and purple tones, far from the typical Christmas decorations, which makes them different and special. You can visit them until 6 January, when the arrival of the Three Wise Men marks the end of the Barcelona festivities.

Santa Llucia Fair

Lasting barely a month, from 25th November to 23rd December, the Santa Llucia fair is unique and typical of the city. It is a must-see if you happen to be in the city between these dates. With many years of history, in this popular fair you will find more than 300 stalls where you can buy Christmas objects and decorations, without forgetting the typical Catalan “caganers”.
This fair is open to the public, with free admission, and is located in the Plaza de la Catedral.

Lights of San Pau

From 22 November to 15 January, the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site will once again be dressed in light and colour with a new concept: the Universe of Light. An extended tour that will allow you to delve into the mysteries of the cosmos: galaxies, stars, planets…
What is beyond what our eyes can see? The Universe of Light will be a space to let your imagination run wild, a Christmas event with more than 20 installations for young and old alike. Ticket prices range from €10 to €14. Don’t miss out, tickets sell out fast!

Three Kings Parade

Just like the lights, each district of the city has its own parade, but the most impressive is undoubtedly the one in the centre of Barcelona.

The Three Wise Men arrive by boat, docking at the Moll de la Fusta on 5 January at around 16:30 in the afternoon. At 18:00 the route begins in the Parc de la Ciutadella, passing along Passeig d’Isabel II, Via Laietana, Plaça Urquinaona, Fontanella, Plaça Catalunya, Pelai, Plaça Universitat, Sepúlveda, Plaça Espanya and Avinguda Rius i Taulet, and ends at the Fonts de Montjuic.

Curious fact: The Barcelona parade has been held continuously since 1942.
