Three Kings arrive with message of peace and welcome
The Three Wise Men arrived in Catalonia greeted by throngs of children and families in time for Epiphany
The day before the Epiphany, January 5, the Three Kings make their annual visit to Catalonia—visiting almost every town but arriving first to the Barcelona port by ship, prior to their grandiose parade later that night.
On their way to dock in the capital, they crossed the Openarms refugee rescue vessel, which accompanied Melchior, Gaspar, and Balthasar to their destination. Once there, the Three Wise Men—the recipients of countless letters from children asking for presents—had a request of their own for the little ones: make Barcelona a city of peace and welcome.
