Celebrate the holiday season with one of our festive experiences

From the moderate winter weather to the festive Catalan traditions, spending the holidays in Barcelona is a truly fantastic experience. Seasonal foods are on full display, like the spiced churros with their hot dipping chocolates or the nearly limitless varieties of turrón confectionary. Locals are also eager to share tales of Tió de Nadal, the smiling log of Catalonian lore, a ubiquitous symbol of holiday cheer and rich history, and a prominent character in the Carassa de Nadal parade.

For the adventurous, the Fira de Santa Llúcia is a kinetic blur of holiday energy. It remains the region’s largest holiday market, featuring hundreds of craftsman, light displays, decorations and culinary delights. The youthful at heart can also enjoy the yearly 1,400 square meter ice skating rink, located in the heart of the Plaça de Catalunya central square. Barcelona offers the warmth of a nostalgic holiday haven, while providing visitors a refreshingly unique experience not soon forgotten.
