The Three Kings Parade

The Three Kings Parade

In Spain, Christmas joy is not over yet: we still have our ‘día de Reyes Magos’. The Three Wise Men or Three Kings will come on the 6th of January to bring gifts to kids (and well, we expect something for us also even though we’re not kids anymore!). 

On the 6th of January, families reunite to open gifts and eat our traditional ‘roscón de reyes’. But on Three Kings’ Eve, there’s also another tradition: the parade.

In Barcelona, this will be the parade itinerary on the 5th of January:

18:00 h Av. Marquès de l’Argentera

18:10 h Pla de Palau

18:15 h Pg. Isabel II

18:25 h Via Laietana

19:00 h Plaça Urquinaona

19:05 h Fontanella

19.10 h Plaça Catalunya

19.25 h Plaça Universitat

19:35 h Ronda Sant Antoni

19:45 h Sepúlveda

20:25 h Av. Paral·lel

20:35 h Plaça Espanya

20:45 h Av. Reina Maria Cristina


In Barcelona until the 4th, you can still enjoy the ‘Reyes Magos’ workshop, where kids can see how they manage to receive and organize all the letters. It opens daily from 5pm to 9pm, and check the deal: free entry!

Also, kids can still give their letters to the Three Kings’ Pages, who are still picking the letters in Plaça Catalunya until the 4th, from 11 am to 2 pm and from 4pm to 8:30 pm.

Enjoy this magical weekend!
