Although Christmas will certainly be different this year, you'll still be able to enjoy some of the magic of the festive season with the Christmas lights. When the city's streets and squares are lit up with Christmassy motifs, we feel that Christmas is here. This year's Christmas lights switch-on will take place in the Plaça Comercial (El Born Centre de Cultura i Memòria) on 26th November at 6pm. The event will be opened by the prestigious choreographer and dancer Sol Picó, who will be presenting her show "Convinal". This year, new Christmas lights will be making their debut, including those around Plaça Catalunya and Carrer Balmes. The lights will be on until midnight on 6th January and, even if you have to wear a face covering, a stroll through Barcelona at sunset during this season will still have a special charm. The façades of some of the city's landmark buildings will also be lit up.
