The Three Kings Parade


As in previous years, the Kings of the Orient are coming to Barcelona accompanied by their traditional retinue of magic creatures and 80 messengers ready to collect the last letters with wish lists before the magic night arrives.

Come and watch the Kings ride their new carriages! They’ll take you with them to their countries of origin. You’ll be amazed by the tranquil gardens of King Melchior, the enchanted forest of King Caspar and the African savannahs of King Balthasar.

Their Majesties will be arriving at 4.30 pm at the Moll de la Fusta wharf. The Schooner Santa Eulàlia will be carrying them along with their retinues. Following their traditional welcome, Their Majesties the Three Kings of the Orient will set off on a route that will take them along several of the city’s streets, starting at 6 pm and finishing at 9 pm.

There will be three areas reserved for people with reduced mobility: in Pl. Antonio López, in front of the stage at Moll de la Fusta and where Pl. Espanya and Av.Paral·lel meet (on the side by the trade fair).

Where: the procession starts at 6 pm along Av. Marquès de l’Argentera. The Kings and their retinue will be parading through Pla de Palau, Pg. Isabel II, Via Laietana, Pl. Urquinaona, C/ Fontanella, Pl. Catalonia, C/ Pelai, Pl. Universitat, Rda Sant Antoni, C/ Sepúlveda, Av Paral·lel, Av Reina Maria Cristina and Av Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia.

When: 5 January

Times: from 6 pm on
