In this representation, four static scenes of diverse themes are displayed and visitors discover them by following an itinerary. They depict various themes such as lost professions, traditional scenes, or biblical passages. With a very well-achieved lighting, the ambiance of these scenes creates a very interesting atmosphere.

    Christmas in Barcelona you can't imagine all the surprises there are in store

    Christmas is the time of year when families get together again, a time for Christmas fairs, lights, presents and good wishes. In Barcelona, we also celebrate traditions in a different and unique way. We put together Nativity scenes, we beat a log with a smiley face, known as the tió, until gifts pop out from under him, we are visited by the home dels Nassos, or man with the noses, who has as many noses as there are days of the year, and we eat a type of nougat called turrón and tubular wafers, known as neules,... Come and discover them!
