Christmas Light Displays in Barcelona, Spain



It is already Christmas and we cannot deny it. Anywhere we go, we see different Christmas decorations; inside our houses, in the street, restaurants, buildings, etc.. We can truly feel the spirit of Christmas through these decorations.

So now, I will share with you some of the Christmas decorations that we have here in Barcelona, Spain. I was able to enjoy it and take some photos of amazing Christmas light displays that we have in these famous streets and highways of Barcelona. But take note that every street, big or small have different decorations. I just decided to talk about few of them.
  
1. Passeig de Gràcia 

Maybe you have seen a photo that looks like these. And yes, that is here is Passeig de Gracia. Passeig de Gracia is a famous street here in Barcelona. You can see different shopping shops and restaurants along this street. And even the famous Casa Mila and Casa Batllo is located here. 

It is indeed stunning. All these lights and butterfly will surely steal your attention. If you are a tourist or even a resident here. You should not miss these.

2. El Corte Inglés in Plaça Catalunya
For me, it is one of the most awaited part every year. El Corte Inglés is a famous and big shopping centre here. And each year, they have different design of Christmas lights outside of their building. It is a good point to attract tourists or even the residents to come inside their building and shop.

3. Ronda de Sant Pere
 From Plaça Catalunya going to Plaça d´Urquinaona you will have to pass in Ronda de Sant Pere. It will greet you with a ¨Bones Festes¨ o Happy Holiday. 

4. Plaça d´Urquinaona
My camera does not give justice on how stunning these lights are. It feels like you are inside the tunnel of lights. Thanks you Darlene who came with me to see these amazing lights. 


5. Via Laietana
Another long street with 1.105km length will greet you with these colourful rounded Christmas light displays. 

6. Portal de l'Àngel

Portal d l´Àngel is a street where you can see a lot of shopping centres as well. And they will also attract you with these stunning Christmas light displays. It truly give Christmas vibes to any people who will pass by in this street. 


7. La Rambla
If you are a tourist, you should not miss La Rambla. It is a famous street here in Barcelona, Spain. The decorations may seem simple but will give you a relaxing vibes of Christmas. After a long day, passing in this street will truly relax you. 

8. Carrer de Pelai
Another street with tons of shopping shops in Carrer de Pelai. As we all know, Christmas tree is a symbol of Christmas and that is their theme for this year. See how amazing their ¨Star¨ is? It is a street light.

All these Christmas light displays look really stunning. But just so you know, Christmas celebration here in Barcelona is indeed different compared to the Christmas celebration in the Philippines. We really miss the Christmas carol, the giving of gifts during Christmas eve, and all those kids that will knock on your door to ask for gifts, and a lot more celebration.

During Christmas in Spain, all the family members gather to have their get together lunch / dinner. Some celebrate it with a Caga Tio which you can see on my previous blog post. It is a way to give gifts to the children. But most of the gifts are given on our famous 3 kings. And I am so excited to share it with you on my next blog. So stay tuned and subscribe to my blog to get updated.
