24 Nov Wonderful Christmas time in Barcelona
December is such a magical month: we’re surrounded by beautifully decorated Christmas trees and colorful lights, and we’re listening to Christmas carols…
But do you know what’s even better? Spending these Christmas holidays in Barcelona! And hopefully, spending next Christmas with a newborn at home!
This Christmas, we would like to give you a special gift: a Christmas voucher for you to use in the months of December 2022 and January 2023. For us, Christmas symbolizes hope and love, which is why we are committed to helping every single one of our patients. Since our doctors’ schedules are not as busy during the holiday season, as they usually are, we could reserve your spot without a waiting list. With the code “ReproclinicChristmasGift”, our patients could get a voucher for up to 500 EUR for their required fertility treatment*!
Hardly anything compares to the holiday spirit felt in Barcelona during the festivities! With so many outdoor and indoor activities to choose from, you’ll want to explore it all! Every year, local Christmas markets start popping up as early as the end of November, and they wait at least until the beginning of January before they close.
One of the most famous traditional Christmas markets in Barcelona is La Feria de Santa Lucía (Fira de Santa Llúcia in Catalan), as it was inaugurated all the way back in 1786, and it’s always been held right in front of the city’s cathedral. What’s interesting about it is that it’s divided into 4 main sections: in the first one, you can find nativity figurines, decorations, and candles; next, they have the “green” corner, with all kinds of plants; the third one is all about handcrafted products and accessories; and lastly, the fourth one is dedicated to music lovers, as they’ll be able to explore traditional Christmas music instruments, such as tambourines.
There are two more Christmas markets that are just as spectacular! The first one is called La Feria de Navidad de la Sagrada Familia which, as suggested by its name, is held right next to Antoni Gaudí’s majestic work of art. The other one is none other than La Feria de Reyes de la Gran Vía which covers various areas of the street Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, and its duration is extended until the 6th of January, when Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar, the three Kings of the East, come to Barcelona bearing gifts.
After exploring the different Christmas markets, allow yourself to be captivated by the Christmas lights of Barcelona in the annual Christmas event Els llums de Sant Pau. From November 22 to January 15, the Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau will once again be dressed in lights and colors, and this year’s theme is “L’Univers de la Llum” (“The Universe of Light” in English) and it will allow you to delve into the mysteries of the cosmos: galaxies, stars, planets… is there something more magical than that?
The spirit of the holidays is also found in music! You can enjoy an endless number of concerts illuminated by candlelight and performed by live musicians, at some of the most emblematic venues in Barcelona. And let’s not forget about the amazing annual Christmas Festival which fills the streets with music and special performances!
This wonderful city won’t disappoint the foodies either, with so many restaurants and cooking workshops to choose from! You could learn how to make traditional Catalan Christmas dishes, like escudella i carn d’olla, and desserts such as turron, or if you’re not into cooking, you will surely find many places with mouthwatering holiday menus!
Well, yes, there’s only one thing that could top all these unforgettable experiences, and that is hoping for a Christmas miracle baby! Did you know that Reproclinic does not close for the holidays? We are so dedicated to helping our patients make their dreams come true that our doctors don’t reschedule treatments, even if they fall on Christmas Day or on New Year’s Eve!
At Reproclinic, we believe that one of the best ways to avoid getting anxious in the time leading up to your fertility treatment of choice, is to explore the streets of the beautifully decorated Barcelona and enjoy this winter wonderland! We promise we’ll help you make all the necessary arrangements for your Christmas getaway, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us today!
