As the year comes to an end, one of the most characteristic signs of the imminent arrival of Christmas is the increase of festive decoration on the streets of the city. Barcelona experiences these dates with full intensity and just before the month of December, lights and Christmas decorations flood through the streets. One of the most beloved and popular activities practiced by the locals during this time of the year is a visit to the Christmas markets.
If the Christmas markets' presence has already been established for a long time, in recent years it has spread to the point that in the current holidays, more than 20 different markets will set up in the streets and squares of Barcelona. That implies the existence of many and varied themes and the offer of very diverse products. Not only are these markets the most appropriate for the Christmas tradition, but they also offer the latest fashion and handcrafts to the public.
