In fact, during the last 31 days of the year, the city offers countless activities that can appeal to all types of people. Let us see the most interesting ones here.
There are two concerts that stand out the most in Barcelona during the month of December. On the one hand, The Cure has included the Catalan capital within its European tour. There will be a total of 30 shows in 17 different countries. Undoubtedly, this is a unique opportunity as the group has not set foot on the Old Continent since 2008 except for its participation in the 2012 Primavera Sound.
On the other hand, more alternative flamenco lovers will have the opportunity to enjoy the show that represents the performance of 'Omega', one of the great masterpieces of the genre and the late flamenco singer, Enrique Morente. The group, Lagartija Nick and his family will return live to stage and perform their classics from 20 years ago.
December is synonymous with big movie premieres. Undoubtedly, the most spectacular of all that will come to light during this month is the new edition of the Star Wars saga. However, in Phenomena, other great productions can be envisaged, which in many cases are considered as classics. In this sense, 'Sin perdon' (Unforgiven) by Clint Eastwood, 'Bailando con lobos' (Dances with Wolves) by Kevin Costner, and 'Django desencadenado' (Django Unchained) by Quentin Tarantino are some of the masterpieces that will be exhibited during the evenings in this cinema.
For its part, la Filmoteca de Cine de Barcelona (the Barcelona Film Archive) will host la Muestra de Cine Espiritual (the Spiritual Film Show), which will feature a total of eight films focusing on religion and spirituality. There will also be a tribute to 'Santo', a Mexican fighter who came to star in more than 50 films. There will also be songs dedicated to Frank Sinatra.
During the month of December, the weekend markets are charged with special vitality in Barcelona. On the Christmas occasion, several markets will be installed in the neuralgic points of the city and in them, you can purchase old books, vinyl classics, and retro furniture. A unique offer that will allow you to take home authentic bargains at incalculable value. No doubt, these are alternative activities you can do with the whole family.
