A few days before the arriving of December and with the Christmas holidays around the corner, from Coastal Villas we want to explain to you why the Costa Brava is one of the best places of the peninsula to come to celebrate these important festivities.
Catalonia is a region, which hides a lot of millenary traditions that we invite you to discover through the traditional “Living Nativity scenes” and the charming Christmas markets.
This itinerary that we have prepared for you is ideal to visit with your partner, with your friends or with the whole family. All these spots are very close to all our magnificent villas.
Prepare your suitcase, take your coat and come to discover all these charming towns of Costa Brava during the most wonderful season of the year.
First of all, we start with the Christmas markets, the first mandatory stop is found in the town of Figueres, there, apart from being able to enjoy the wonders of Dalí, you will also find a charming Christmas Market, where you can buy the typical and characteristic “Caga Tió”, undoubtedly one of the pillars of Christmas in Catalonia, and where we also suggest you to buy the iconic “caganer”. Surely through the aisles of this market, you will find the figure of Donald Trump or the omnipresent Rosalía in the form of this nice character from Bethlehem.
Other Christmas markets that we invite you to visit are those of Girona, l’Escala, Roses, Tossa de Mar, and Sant Feliu de Guíxols. There you can buy figurines for the Bethlehem, original gifts for the Secret Santa, fir trees… The Christmas atmosphere has filled all these charming little villages.
Another way to capture the essence of Christmas in Catalonia is by visiting the characteristic Living Nativity scenes.
One of the most iconic is undoubtedly that one that takes place in Pals, one of the most historic towns on the Costa Brava. In it, you will have the feeling of being inside the manger, the perfectly preserved medieval fortification, is the perfect setting to recreate one of the most celebrated chapters of the Christian culture.
Other of the “Living Nativity scenes” that we encourage you to discover for its natural charm are those of Amer, Tossa de Mar, and Castell d’Aro.
A little tip: Before visiting any of these markets or nativity scenes we recommend you to check their calendar and opening hours.
Costa Brava doesn’t need any excuse to be visited, its abrupt and wild beauty will capture you from the first sight, however, during Christmas days, this fascinating area, shines even more strongly.
