-The Barcelona Shopping Night Decoration
The Barcelona shopping Night is lit up under Barcelona Christmas lights, which is a traditional Christmas decoration, with Christmas Lights all over the city of Barcelona. Everyone will be well and truly in the Christmas mood with hundreds of lights shining in the dark and wintery December nights. 77 kilometers of streets are lit, which underlines the serious investment in the decoration. As an addition to lights, the magic fountain of Montjuïc presents Christmas shows on every Friday and Saturday in December.
-What is on offer?
There will be seven stages along the Passeig de Gràcia with carrer Roselló, Provença. Mallorca, València, Arágo, Conell de Cent, Diputació and Gran Via.
