The year begins and university students return from their homes to their shared flats and university residences in Barcelona. After a few days of rest with family and friends, we resume the year with a lot of plans with which to enjoy winter in Barcelona.
In today's post we recommend some plans for you to return to Barcelona and start classes.
Although Christmas is over almost everywhere in the world, if you are a student in Barcelona these days, take the opportunity to return momentarily to your childhood and learn about one of the traditions of Christmas in Spain. The Cagalbata of the Magi from the East. The ride is long, so find the closest point to your student flat and enjoy this magical moment.
The morning after the Three Kings Parade, is the great day of gifts. Children receive gifts from the Three Kings, and adults also take the opportunity to ask for some special detail. If you want to celebrate the day of kings with your roommates, you can go to the Gran Vía Fair and find the ideal gift and, incidentally, eat some churros with chocolate.
Yesiiiiiiiiii !!!! With the month of January the sales also arrive, which last until the end of February or even last until March in some shops. Under the Barcelona sun you will find many different shops: luxury; boutiques, chains in shopping centers. The Sales in Barcelona last several days, so you will have plenty of time to make good purchases from January to March. Stores like Zara or Mango, which are already cheaper in Spain than in other European countries, have great discounts during this time. But do not forget that in Barcelona, ??in addition to the large chains, you have many designer stores and this is the perfect opportunity to get a special garment at a price tailored to the pocket of a student.
