You’re planning a visit to Barcelona in January? Let me suggest a couple of interesting exhibitions:
Exhibitions opening in January 2019
The Three Wise Men’s Parade
The parade honoring the Three Wise Men takes place every year on January 5th. The “Magos”, as they are known here, arrive at Port Vell (the old harbor) on their ship. They depart the ship after landing and begin a long parade through the city. Their train moves past cheering crowds of old and young alike, throwing candy to the children all the while. The children then awake to find their presents delivered on January 6th – presents which, according to local lore, are brought by the Three Wise Men instead of Santa Claus.
