The magic of Christmas arrives in Girona

26/11/14 | At this time of year, the city of Girona is the perfect place to do your Christmas shopping, take a stroll, see the Christmas shows and enjoy the atmosphere of this festive period.

Just like every year around this time, Girona offers a wide range of Christmas activities for children and families to enjoy in the city. Not to be missed this year is the new ice-skating show, the Great Christmas Circus, which brings together some of the best international circus-on-ice attractions at the Girona-Fontajau Sports Centre from 25 to 28 December.

Other leisure options designed especially for young children include Lleuresport children's park and the ice rink, installed in the Exhibition Centre from 20 December to 5 January, and the traditional "Pastorets" nativity play at the Municipal Theatre (family show performed in Catalan).

The City Council is also planning other activities, such as Christmas carol singing in the street and a Christmas fair in Plaça Independència, selling crafts and hand-made products, the traditional New Year chimes and the Three Kings' parade, to experience the most magical night of the year.
