Despite the low temperatures in January, you can still enjoy many activities in Barcelona. Starting on the first day of the year and the winter sales, all this and much more awaits you.
The first day of the year
January 1st is one of the great holidays in the city of Barcelona. The shops remain closed, with the exception of the mall, Maremagnum, which usually opens its doors every day of the year.
If you are going to eat out it is advisable to book well in advance. In Barcelona it is customary to celebrate the first day of the year by eating with the family. If we get too close to that date we will not find room in the best restaurants in the city.
Another great option is to attend a new year's concert. There are many in Barcelona, and in some cases they are organised a few days before.
