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!
