Christmas in Barcelona 2012

From 25/12/2012 To 26/12/2012
Venue: Barcelona

In Catalunya Christmas takes place on the 25th and 26th of December, and is a wonderful time of year to visit Barcelona and the city has a magical atmosphere - especially the medieval Old Town where you will find a traditional Christmas atmosphere and see its narrow streets adorned with wonderful lights.

At Christmas a mass is held at dawn on the 25th, known as the missa del gall (cockerels mass). Later in the day families come together to enjoy a hearty and rib sticking meal of escudella i carn dolla - a slow cooked stew with several kinds of meat, sausage, vegetables and pasta, all in large quantities. Gifts are not exchanged until the 7th of January traditionally, the day of the three kings. In recent times Santa Claus has started putting in an appearance as well however.
