Christmas is almost here and today we want to invite you to visit some of the places where Christmas spirit is at its most. A small route through the most enchanting villages of Girona and the Costa Brava.

And during these dates many of these towns are filled with lights, markets, cribs, and various activities. Here is a list of those we like the most and where you will live a fairy tale Christmas:

Girona, for Christmas, is decked with lights. We highlight the Christmas Fair of Independence Square, the traditional "Pastorets" at eh Municipal Theatre, and the Ice Rink and the Slide located in the Palau de Fires, where children and adults will have a great time. We also recommend a stroll through the old quarter, la Rambla and Santa Clara Street with it Christmas lights. Take the opportunity to take some pictures of the on the enlightened bridges on the Onyar River.

Castell d’Aro (Baix Empordà)

We recommend a visit to the Castell d'Aro Living Nativity Scene. It was first performed in 1959 and is the oldest in Catalonia, taking place between the mediaeval quarter and La Coma district. More than 300 people take part in the nativity scene. Visit Platja d'Aro to see the tunnel of light installed in Carrer Miramar, its 60 metres long and has more than 900 LED points, a magical spectacle of light, music and colours. You can also take advantage of your visit to go to the Platja d'Aro ice rink and do some Christmas shopping.

Figueres (Alt Empordà)

If you pass by the Rambla of Figueres you will find wooden stalls, the Christmas Market stalls (from November 25th to December 24th), where you can buy typical Christmas products such as fir trees, caganer's figures, artisan sausages, cribs figures, nougats, "tions" … We recommend a walk through the city centre to see the Christmas lighting with figures inspirated with Dalí.

Olot (La Garrotxa)

Olot, the capital of La Garrotxa area, is an ideal village to enjoy Christmas with the whole family. Christmas time in Olot starts with the Crib's Fair at the beginning of December, where you will find nativity figuries, "tions" and "tionas" of all sizes and characterisations, the most trendy Christmas decorations and a craft market. During Christmas there are also a lot of activities such as family shows, markets, crib exhibitions and carol singing. We highlight the outdoor ice rink, installed in the Plaza Mayor, which will delight young and old alike.

Camprodon is the perfect place for those who want to enjoy a snowy Christmas. We highlight the Parade of the Man with the Nose on the 31st, which gives out noses and sweets, and the popular San Silvestre race for sports lovers. Don't miss the Camprodon Christmas Market. For the children there is the Christmas Park, where all kind of workshops are organised, such as cooking or robotics, as well as inflatables and a toy library.
