Just 70 km from Barcelona you will find Vic, where every December they put on an impressive medieval market. This is one of the events of the year for this city of approximately 45,000. In 2019, the last edition will take place from December 6th to 9th.

We will tell you why it deserves a place on your itinerary and how to get to Vic from Barcelona.

Take a trip to the middle ages

For four days, the historic center of Vic dates back to the medieval era. Street stalls appear everywhere where you can buy all kinds of local delicacies like bread, sweets, sausages and jams. But that is not all! There are also stalls selling handicrafts, which makes the Vic Medieval Market a great place to start your Christmas shopping. Beauty products, decorations, jewelry and much more make not many go empty-handed.

Taverns are another important part of this massive medieval market. There are many places to enjoy delicious sandwiches, cakes, pizzas and much more. In addition to that, craft beers feature prominently pairing tremendous meals.

Public activities for all

To make the most of your time in this medieval-style town, there are all kinds of activities that are open to the public. These include children’s workshops, music, dance, and street performances.

It’s also worth visiting the jobs area of yesteryear, where you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about certain middle-age jobs. Remember, everything around you and everything people wear seems medieval.

The bird of prey display is also very entertaining for children and adults.

Enjoy the morning.

The best way to get better at photography is start by taking your camera everywhere. If you leave your house, your camera leaves with you. The only exception is if you’re planning for a weekend bender — then probably leave it at home. Other than that, always have it slung over your shoulder. It would probably help to get an extra battery to carry in your pocket. I’ve got three batteries. One in my camera, one in my pocket, one in the charger. When it dies, swap them all.

For me, the most important part of improving at photography has been sharing it. Sign up for an Exposure account, or post regularly to Tumblr, or both. Tell people you’re trying to get better at photography. Talk about it. When you talk about it, other people get excited about it. They’ll come on photo walks with you. They’ll pose for portraits. They’ll buy your prints, zines, whatever. I’ve got a Fujifilm X100s. It runs about $1300.

It’s easily the best camera I’ve ever owned. I take care of it as best as I can, but I don’t let taking care of it impact the photography. Let me elaborate on that a bit better. You’ll get better at each section of what we talked about slowly. And while you do, you’ll be amazed at how much easier it all is and how the habit forms.
