Christmas is coming and Barcelona knows that one of the most typical events is St. Lucia Fair (Fira de Santa Llúcia), a Christmas Fair which is held around the Cathedral of Barcelona and it is dedicated to the sale of typical Christmas products, as Nativity, Christmas trees and other typical products typical in Catalonia.
The Fira de Santa Llucia 2013 will begin this year on 30st November.
The Fira de Santa Llucia is a traditional event very old. In fact, historian Joan Amades wrote about it in his famous book Costumari Català. The origins of the Fira de Santa Llucia date back at least to 1786.
