  • Christmas traditions in Barcelona. The Tió

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

    Seasonal , BCN Life

    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!
