If you are thinking about how to spend your Christmas in Barcelonahere is a list of the 5 best plans to do on your vacations in this amazing city!

1. Visit "Els llums de Sant Pau" at the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site. A tour where each of its installations will inject you with the Christmas spirit in very different ways. Discover its amazing audiovisual installations where light will be the protagonist and, this year, enjoy a unique ice rink surrounded by modernist architecture! Without a doubt, a memorable ice skating experience for the whole family. 

Visit a Christmas market. All of Barcelona's Christmas markets are great places to get into the Christmas spirit and get unique gifts and souvenirs. Our favorite is the Fira de Santa Llúcialocated near the Barcelona Cathedral, where you'll find Christmas trees, Nativity Scene decorations and figures and, of course, Tiós and Caganers! You can take home a little piece of the magic of Barcelona.

3. Enjoy a delicious hot chocolate. One of the best ways to combat the cold is to indulge yourself with a good hot chocolate. Combine it with "melindros" or "churros" to make the experience more authentic.

4. Spend an afternoon ice skating. What better way to celebrate Christmas than going ice skating with the whole family or friends? In winter, Barcelona is full of ice rinks: in the Recinto Modernista de Sant Pau, in the Tibidabo Park, in the Port Vell, in the Illa Diagonal...

5. Stroll through "Nadal al Port", the Christmas market by the sea. An attractive space, surrounded by boats, color and smell of the sea.
