    Stop At: Barcelona Cathedral, Pla de la Seu, S/N, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    The elevator taking visitors to the rooftops can be accessed though the chapel of the Innocent Saints, next to the door of San Ivo. From the rooftops, we can see the two bell towers, the two lateral pinnacles, the cimborio crowned by the Holy Cross (sustained by the image of Saint Helena), the Cloister and a spectacular panoramic view of Barcelona.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Capilla de Santa Lucia, Barcelona Spain

    Fira de Santa Llúcia: a fair dating from 1786!
    What will you find? Well, not many Santa Clauses, that's for sure. But you will find everything you'll need for the traditional Christmas crib which is the centrepiece of our homes over the festive season: moss, figurines, shepherds, little houses, trees and caganers… You'll also find decorations for the tree, lucky mistletoe and tió logs with smiley faces sporting a typical Catalan cap, the barretina.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Placa de Sant Jaume, Placa Sant Jaume, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    The Plaça Sant Jaume has been the city's political centre almost since its inception. Today the Plaça Sant Jaume is an open space, a "lung" in the middle of the Gothic Quarter. The square is the site of the most important buildings in the lives of Barcelona and Catalonia: City Hall and the Palau de la Generalitat.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Basilica de Santa Maria del Pi, Plaza Del Pi, 7, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    Food Artisans Market
    A nice surprise that pops up in Plaça Santa Maria del Pi (by the church of the same name), in the Gothic District, this mini-market has around twenty stalls selling artisanal treats such as Catalan honey, chocolates, cheeses, wines, and cakes. A good one for non-kitsch stocking fillers.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Carrer Petritxol, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    If you are looking for streets with this special charm in Barcelona, you can't miss carrer Petritxol, it is a pedestrian street known to be the street of chocolate in Barcelona and I will explain to you why. Carrer Petritxol is documented since 1340, and the name petrítxol comes from the word "pedrítxol" that refers to those stones that didn't allow the carriages to come inside a certain street. Petrítxol was the first pedestrian street in Barcelona city in 1959.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: La Rambla, La Rambla, Barcelona, Catalonia

    La Rambla is exactly 1.2 kilometres long and nearly everyone who visits Barcelona walks along it. La Rambla was laid out in 1766, following the contours of the medieval city walls that had bounded this part of Barcelona since the 13th century. The locals took it to their hearts straightaway. In Barcelona, a city of narrow, winding streets, the Rambla was the only space where everyone could stroll and spend their leisure time. And we mean everyone. Because of its central location, the Rambla became a meeting place for all the social classes.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Mercat de la Boqueria, La Rambla, 91, 08001 Barcelona Spain

    La Rambla's history is the Boqueria Market's history. The evolution from a past of peddlers to a modern and charming present, full of color and life. The market is a metaphor for Barcelona's life, a human river that is the delight for those who like watching.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Port Vell (Old Port), Port Vell (Old Port), Barcelona, Catalonia

    The Port Vell will host a Christmas fair by the sea from December 5 to January 5. The Christmas market, which will be located in front of the Columbus monument, will bring together a wide variety of stalls, an area of gastronomy and activities for all audiences. One of the great attractions of the fair will be a tree with 31-meter led lighting, as well as a floating nativity scene and a classic carousel.

    The market coincides with the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Port of Barcelona, which this 2019 marks a century and a half from the start of the modern port project. To celebrate it, the Port of Barcelona offers an extensive program of events aimed at all citizens.
