The beautiful environment where this fair is located is the Avenida de la Catedral and dates from the year 1786.

The opening of the almost three hundred stalls, with figurines and mangers, Christmas trees of different sizes and the products of Catalan crafts for this time, begins at the end of November and ends shortly before December 25.

Children are the ones who most enjoy this charming market that, to the rhythm of Christmas carols, also attracts visitors from all over the world.

Around the stalls, the activities of the dates are celebrated with the Festival of Christmas Traditions and Customs, the Christmas Carassa parade, puppets inspired by Christmas themes and the famous giant “Tió” full of gifts that makes the delights for the whole family.

This year the city launches a new lighting design in Plaza de Catalunya, Gran Vía and Aragón street with a total of more than four hundred points of illuminated sections.

The city’s merchants are the ones who organize and contribute to make this magnificent lighting possible in the most important streets.

But for me, there is nothing like the beauty of Gaudí‘s buildings, on Paseo de Gracia, illuminated at Christmas, full of magic and secret memories for lovers of its architecture.

Casa Batlló offers different polychromes for this 2021.

And one of my favorite hotels Casa Fuster, the right place to take a glass of Champagne enjoying the sound of jazz.
Barcelona is a city to visit and not forget!
