1. Visit the Christmas markets in Barcelona

One thing Barcelona if well know for, it’s for its curious Christmas traditions: The Caganer, the cagatió, etc. If you want to discover all of them, we recommend you to visit the Christmas markets in Barcelona.

The best known are the Fira de Santa Llúcia at  in front of Barcelona’s Cathedral, and the Fira de Nadal in Sagrada Familia. Thus, in addition to visiting the market, you will be able to enjoy the beauty of two iconic monuments of the city: The city’s main Cathedral and Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia.

2. Go ice skating  in Barcelona

What’s more festive than going ice skating during the holidays? In Barcelona you can find the “Skating Barcelona Club” which belongs to FC Barcelona. Therefore, it is located next to Camp Nou Stadium. So, you can spend the day visiting the stadium and museum and go skating afterwards.

There is also the Pedralbes Center shopping center in Diagonal Av. Every year, this centre has a small outdoor skating rink, ideal for children. A perfect combination of Christmas shopping and family skating, sounds good, doesn’t it?

However, if you want to discover other areas of the city, you can go to the skating rink at Farga de l’ Hospitalet (Metro L1 – Av. Carrilet). It’s a convention centre that turns every Christmas into a big ice rink. It’s further away, so it’s a good solution if you want to escape the bustle of the city centre.
