The Sant Llúcia Fair, held in the heart of Ciutat Vella, reaches its 232nd edition this year. The fair opens on 30 November and finishes on 23 December, with its usual series of activities for people of all ages.
The fair brings together nearly 300 stalls with traditional Christmas products, including nativity scenes and figures, trees, moss, craft items, friction drums and musical toys.
Various parallel activities are being organised, such as the giant tió pooping log and the traditional procession by the city’s Carassa de Nadal figure. The 25th meeting for Catalan Christmas traditions and customs is also being held.
At the same time, and within a hundred metres of the fair, the Museu Frederic Marès (Plaça de Sant Iu, 5) will be setting up a nativity scene of over 35 square metres, with figures up to 40cm tall.
