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.
