Today I bring you some Christmas activities you can do and enjoy in Barcelona during these days in the next post I'll tell you more!
1. Fira de Santa Llúcia
Is the most famous Christmas market in Barcelona. This year it celebrates its 225th anniversary. There you'll find more than 270 stands dedicated to the typical Catalan Christmas. You can also see a giant 'Tió'.
It's located in front of Barcelona's Cathedral.
Until the 22nd of December. From 10.30h to 20.30h.
It was created following la Fira de Santa Llúcia because there wasn't more space.
Today, it has more than 150 stands dedicated to Christmas.
It's located around the Sagrada Família.
Until the 22nd of December. From 10.00h to 22.00h.

Hoy os traigo algunas actividades navideñas que podéis hacer y disfrutar en Barcelona durante estos días, en el siguiente post más!
1. Fira de Santa Llúcia
Es el mercado navideño más famosos de Barcelona. Este año celebra su 225 aniversario. Encontraréis más de 270 paradas dedicadas a la típica Navidad catalana (pesebres, caganers, tió...). También podéis ver un 'Tió' gigante.
Last Wednesday, me and a lot of people in Barcelona attended to the second edition of The Shopping Night. There were most of the shops in Passeig de Gràcia opened until 1 o'clock in the morning.
Through all Passeig de Gràcia there were activities like driving (playing) a Ferrari, participating in different draws, tasting some delicious food, music, etc.
But more important was the fact that many shops you would never go in, yesterday everybody was inside!!!
I enjoyed a lot going to Santa Eulàlia where they have bags such as Balenciaga, Céline, Mulberry and also shoes like Louboutin. I was so excited!! You'll never know how obsessed with bags I am!!! :)
Some shops like Mango, Blanco or Custo offered some discounts but I think there should be more of them in next editions. Inside some shops they offered some beverages or even popcorn in Mango!!
I enjoyed a lot that night. However, I think many shops had a 'party' spirit that others unfortunately didn't have. But as I said it was the second edition of this Shopping Night in Barcelona so I think year after year the event will upgrade :)
Here you have the photos I took before the event started and during the same.
Hope you like them :)
Before the event started:
During the event:
Carme Ruscalleda and Raül Balam outside the Mandarin Oriental hotel.
Musicians in front of the same hotel.
Custo Pop-up store open until 11th of December.
In Mango there were more musicians and they were giving free popcorn!
There were some guided tours around the area.
4t1a, a band which played in the The Brandery area.
Nocilla crêpes, they were delicious and you could help charity by donating some money. This is my friend Anna with whom I spent the night with :)
Guess with balloons from Desigual lol (everybody was with these balloons everywhere).
Another Mango store, with musicians and free Malibu.
Judit Mascó in Stuart Weitzman (photo taken from outside the boutique).
Santa Eulàlia: the best boutique for me in this moment OMG I hope the day to have something from there to come!!! lol As you see in the photos I only took photos of some bags: my obsession!!!!!! and some shoes, but you can find a lot of clothes and more accessories for either man or woman. I fell in love the moment I took this last Balenciaga bag and tried it in my arm!!!!! <3
