Christmas lights switch-on in Barcelona

As is tradition, a ceremony will be held to mark the switch-on of the city’s Christmas lights. This year the event will take place on 28th November in Plaça de Can Fabra, in the district of Sant Andreu.

The hour-long event will feature a show starring fairy-tale characters. Once it has finished, the city’s streets will be lit up every evening until 6th January from 5.30pm until midnight.

During the run-up to Christmas, make the most of your time and buy your festive gifts while you browse the shops along the Barcelona Shopping Line: the 5-km retail area showcasing leading brands from Spain and around the world, unique shops, and shops where you’ll find the latest trends. The lights vary from street to street. Passeig de Gràcia, one of the city’s iconic boulevards, has chosen giant, transparent butterflies and 5-metre-long strings of lights.

Avinguda Diagonal, La Rambla, the Gothic Quarter, and this year, for the first time, Via Laietana, will all have their own lights, some of them on the façades of landmark buildings.
