Christmas markets in Barcelona 2017 🗓

Barcelona is not a Christmas city with Christmas markets like Vienna, Bratislava, Prague, Krakow, Budapest and similar cities. But, there are still some Christmas markets worth visiting.

The most famous Christmas market in Barcelona is located in front of the Barcelona Cathedral. The market is titled Fira di Santa Llucia, and this is the biggest market as well. It isn’t a giant market, but you will be able to find local products here that might be nice to bring with you home as souvenirs.

Dates for this Christmas market: might be, but not sure….. November 24th – January 6th

Christmas market Barcelona 2017

There is also a small Christmas market available in front of the Sagrada Familia

The fact about Barcelona is that the bigger events take place between Christmas and January 6th. In this period you better visit Gran Via, as this is the place for a market quite similar to the German/Austrian/Eastern European markets, except for the food and the drinks.

Do you like the sound of this? Or would you rather visit Barcelona in the spring or autumn, and visit Prague for Christmas and some Christmas shopping instead? It is entirely your choice!

Barcelona vs Real Betis, LaLiga kick-off 2017 🗓

On August 20th, the national day of Hungary (who cares), it is time for kick-off in the Spanish top league. Barcelona will play against Real Betis at Nou Camp.

FC Barcelona had a disappointing season in 2016-17. They did not win LaLiga and they did not win the Champions League either. They proved themselves to be a great team several times, except from the fact that they had some defensive trouble, especially against PSG and against Juventus.

The new season is now approaching, and hopefully, FC Barcelona will manage to play even better this season, and thus win LaLiga and also the Champions League. It will not be easy, especially considering the strength of Real Madrid, a team that seems to be unstoppable nowadays. But, if Neymar, Suarez, and Messi will keep it going like they normally do, FC Barcelona will be a hard team to stop as well.

The opening match will be played in Barcelona on August 20th against Real Betis. One week later FC Barcelona will travel to Alaves to play.

If you would like to be there at Camp Nou to watch the opening match on August 20th, read more about FC Barcelona and how to buy tickets to their matches in this article.

FC Barcelona vs PSG 🗓

On March 8th football enthusiasts from across the world will look to Barcelona and to Camp Nou. Can Barcelona get revenge for their terrible 4-0 loss at Parc des Princes in Paris on Valentine’s Day in 2017?

Before the match on Valentine’s Day most people expected it to be a close match that would end with a draw, or maybe a one-goal win for FC Barcelona. Nobody expected it to be a run-over which would end with a 4-0 victory for Paris Saint-Germain. So, what can we expect from the match between FC Barcelona and PSG on March 8th?

Can Barcelona beat PSG on March 8th

Marco Iacobucci EPP /

What to expect from FC Barcelona vs PSG?

We believe it will be a match that FC Barcelona will start in 110%. They will be out there to get their early goal which will make PSG insecure, and thus they can keep scoring those goals, and in the end it might end with a 5-0 victory or Barcelona. But, they should of course be careful as one single PSG goal will result in FC Barcelona having to score 6 times to win the match. It seems like an awful prognosis for FC Barcelona to actually win, but bigger miracles have happened before in the football world, so we just have to cheer and hope!

Are there tickets available for the match?

If you want to be there at the match between FC Barcelona and PSG, then you can try to buy tickets at the stadium, or you can visit to order your tickets online.

How to watch FC Barcelona vs PSG online?

If you would like to watch the match online, then our recommendation is that you stream FC Barcelona vs PSG online at Fubo TV. You can read more about Fubo TV and how it works (with screenshots, prices and information) in this article.

Magnificent portraits made by Picasso 🗓

A cooperation between the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Picasso museum in Barcelona has led to this temporary exhibition on Picasso portraits in the Picasso museum in Barcelona.

Since this is a cooperation between the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Picasso Museum it is only fair that the exhibition can be enjoyed in both museums. That is why this exhibition will first be on display in London between October 5th in 2016 and February 6th in 2017, before it will come to Barcelona to be displayed in the Picasso museum between March 17th in 2017 and June 25th in 2017.

It is a fact that Picasso loved making portraits and also caricatures. That is why this exhibition is a fantastic opportunity to see a mixture of his funny side with his more serious side as you discover his portraits and caricatures.


Some more info about the exhibition (source: Picasso museum website)

The National Portrait Gallery and the Museu Picasso de Barcelona are organising a major exhibition exploring the place of caricature in Picasso’s portraiture, a subject that has not previously been explored in detail. The exhibition will contain paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints from all periods of the artist’s long career. It is being curated by Elizabeth Cowling, Professor Emeritus of History of Art at Edinburgh University, and an independent scholar and exhibition curator.

For even more information on this exhibition take a look at the video beneath.
