Christmas in Barcelona


We are used to see Barcelona more under the sun than under the snow. The winter here is much milder than in the rest of Europe, with average temperatures ranging from 9 ° C to 15 °C and with only 6 days of rain during each month. Prepare the warm clothes as well as sunglasses because even if the temperatures are low, the sun is that makes your walks in the city very pleasant.

In Barcelona most of the Christmas festivities begin in late November: Christmas Market, Fira de Santa Llúcia begins Nov. 25 on the steps of the Cathedral. You can try Christmas specialties.
