Do you still have to buy some Christmas presents? So, take advantage of this opportunity and start your bicycle’s tour through the principal Christmas street markets in Barcelona.

We can start it with the Fira de Santa Llúcia, the oldest one, where you are going to find the most traditional and handmade presents. In the Avinguda de la Catedral, the market is available from the 29th of November to the 23rd of December -next week-, so be quick and don’t miss it.

And from the oldest one to the newest one, the Fira de Nadal del Port Vell, very close to the Colom monument. This new market, in addition to the traditional stands, also have shows and activities. It is available from the 5th of December to the 5th of January.

Although, if you feel like pedaling more and you want to get away from the center of Barcelona, you shouldn’t miss the street markets from other neighborhoods as the one in Sagrada Família, Via Júlia -in the la Prosperitat and Verdum neighborhood-, the Fira de Reis -the Three Wise Men market- of Gran Via, the one at Sants in the Rambla Badal, the one in Poble Espanyol or the other one in Passeig Sant Joan, close to the Gràcia neighborhood.

¡Find the most original presents through a tour in the city and experience its Christmas spirit!

Dear Three Wise Men…

January 3rd, 2018

After Christmas Day and the New Year’s Eve, there is another important moment of these days: the arriving of the Three Wise Men. What are you going to wish for? We will explain how to contact with them here.

If you are one of the persons who has been doing things in an unlimited way these last days –eating non stop, visiting your family and playing games with the kids-, surely, the first thing you will wish for is some outdoor activities.

These days Barcelona is full of activities referring to the Three Wise Men, because the people can walk through its streets and enjoy the last days of Christmas. The Three Kings’ toy factory will be active until the 4th of January at the “Fabra i Coats – Fàbrica de Creació” facilities. Do you know anything about this place? It is a spectacular industrial building in the district of Sant Andreu, which has been remodeled to become a place full of activities, where different businesses and projects live together. Take advantage of this event to leave the center and discover a bit more of this city. In addition, you will enjoy a tour full of magic and you will see how the letters to the Three Wise Men are transformed into presents.

You can also deliver your wish list to the helpers of the Three Wise Men, Estel and Omar, who are at Plaça Catalunya from Tuesday to Thursday, in order to assist the Three Wise Men with their work.

And, certainly, you shouldn’t miss the Three Wise Men’s parade of the 5th o January, which will start at 6 p.m. You can follow the planned trajectory or you can wait for their arrival at one of these points:

6 p.m. Av. Marquès de l’Argentera

6.10 p.m. Pla de Palau

6.25 p.m. Via Laietana

7 p.m.  Pl. Urquinaona

7.05 p.m. Fontanella

7.10 p.m. Pl. Catalunya

7.25 p.m. Pl. Universitat

7.35 p.m. Rda. Sant Antoni

7.45 p.m. Sepúlveda

8.25 p.m. Paral·lel

8.35 p.m Pl. Espanya

8.45 p.m Av. Reina Maria Cristina

Remember to include non-sexist presents in your list, for example… a bicycle 😉

The final stages: pedaling through Barcelona with the Three Wise Men

January 3rd, 2017

The 5th of January the Three Wise Men arrive in Barcelona and with them the Christmas days will finalize, so, take advantage of the last activities of the city.

The 5th of January at 6 p.m. the Three Wise Men’s parade will start out from the Avinguda Marquès de l’Argentera and will go up through Via Laietana. It will cross the center of Barcelona and will continue through Sepúlveda street to Plaça Espanya, and it will finish at the Avinguda Maria Cristina at 8:45 p.m. If you want to get yourself ahead to one of these points, remember that the best means of transport to avoid the crowds of this day is the bicycle.

Although, if you are a foresighted person and you want to deliver your letter to the Three Wise Men before anyone else, from the 2nd to the 4th of January at the Plaça Catalunya, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m, the page Estel, and from 4 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. the page Omar, are the ones in charge of collecting the letters of kids and adults, advancing the work of the Three Wise Men.

Before writing your letter, remember some of the intentions for this New Year and ask for sustainable and non-sexist presents. In Barcelona, there are a lot of sustainable consumption fairs with original and proximity products.

And, if you don’t know what you could ask for, remember that the bicycle is a great present for now and for the future.
