Touring Catalonia's oldest Christmas market

Christmas markets are popular all around Europe, but the ones in Catalonia tend to look a little different from typical markets in other countries. Instead of depicting snowy tales in between stands with Glühwein and food, an ice skating rink, or an indoor shed with Christmas and Tiroler songs, Catalans like to highlight the ‘market’ aspect of Christmas markets by exclusively presenting stands with Christmas related products. The early December sun also brightens the shopping experience.
