In one of our previous posts published here, in the Weekly Villas Magazine, we talked about Christmas and New Year’s Eve 2019 in Sitges, about the most featured events available in the city, so you could plan in the best and most accurate way this Christmas holidays.

However, staying in Sitges does not mean that is imposible to be able to live Christmas first-hand in the great and world-renowned city of Barcelona

Sitges is very close to Barcelona, and during Christmas, a great diversity of ways to go from one city to another are provided. You can rent a car and arrive to Barcelona in less than 45 minutes, take a taxi, and even go by train or bus. In addition, during Christmas holidays, transport such as the Barcelona metro is usually operational all day.

Next, let’s talk about the 3 best events to enjoy during Christmas 2019 in the magnificent multicultural city of Barcelona.

1 – La Sagrada Familia: The symbol of the city.

The best time to visit La Sagrada Familia, one of the most important architectural figures of the modern and contemporary era at the hands of the famous Antoni Gaudi (visited by more than 4 million people a year), is during winter.

The main reason? Christmas.

For these dates a lot of activities related to the Cathedral and Christmas holidays are carried out, such as the following:

  • The fair of the Sagrada Familia (November 20th to December 23th):

This tradition it’s live since 1962 and four sectors of exhibitions can be identified in front of the majestic Cathedral:

These are the sector related to Christmas trees and plants, the sector dedicated to the mangers and all kinds of traditional figures and decorative Christmas products, the food sector with all kinds of artisan Christmas nougat and candies, and the gifts and clothes sector.

  • Lights that illuminate the Cathedral ( 19th to 22th of December):

Each year and exclusively for these dates, the so-called facade of the Birth of the Cathedral is illuminated with three daily sessions (except on Saturday that it will be only one session).

2- Enjoy Christmas while helping others: The definition of the Christmas spirit.

We must not forget the main reason for the existence of these festivities, their tradition and the definition of the Christmas spirit. All this is summed up in solidarity.

Barcelona does not forget the root of Christmas, and every year during these dates, there are many solidarity activities of various types. Enjoy while helping others, that is the perfect Christmas plan.

  • Solidarity Walk and food collection for faces (15th of December):

This activity is based on enjoying a walk while touring the most important points of the city (in total about 11 kilometers), until arriving at the Ciutadella Park, where you will find a food collection point of Cáritas.

The walk starts at 9 in the morning, and the arrival time limit is 1:00 p.m. The entry is completely free.

3- Farewell of the year 2019 at the hands of Group F: End of the year 2019.

This last night of the year, the whole city is filled with a large crowd of people with their memories of everything lived during the year, walking quietly through the streets full of colorful lights, shows and ornaments everywhere, highlighting by above all, the farewell of the year on Avenida de la Reina Maria Cristina.

This year on that avenue, the so-called “Universal Languages and Contemporany Forms” show will return by the Group F company, which they repeat in Barcelona after a complete triumf in the previous year. This group is also responsible for major events such as the inauguration of the River Games or the Louvre in Abu Dhabi.
