For a closer Christmas than ever before in Tarragona     

From the end of November Tarragona is decked with festive Christmas lights and hosts its annual Christmas fair. Two very rooted traditions are re-enacted: el Tió (log that gives presents) and the nativity scenes exhibited in premises of different associations and in the city’s parks. The festivities are completed with different Christmas activities: Performance of the theatre show Els Pastorets (The Little Sheperds), Christmas carol singing, and the children’s park, among others.

This 2022, after living Christmas away from the people we love the most for several years, Tarragona hopes that everyone will recover the magic and spirit of these festivities and that the feelings that these dates awaken, such as illusion, linked to joy, hope, and love, will once again come to the surface.

During these days, the city will be filled with events to experience and share a Christmas closer than ever.

Don't miss it!
