Winter in Barcelona14 September 2013

We'd highly recommend a visit to Barcelona during the winter months. The city is much quieter and there's still plenty to keep you entertained. Our 39 Steps apartment is very central and has heating if required.

Here are some key dates
The International Jazz Festival takes place from the 19th of October to December 1st this year.

The Fira de Santa Llúcia market has run in the lead up to Christmas since 1786. You'll find the market close to the city's cathedral (just a few minutes' walk from 39 Steps). It's a great place to pick up decorations and Christmas gifts. 

Three Kings' Day or 'Reis Mags' is on Twelfth Night (January 5th, 2014). Reis Mags is the biggest day of celebration for Christmas in Spain and Barcelona puts on a huge procession of floats to celebrate.

Santa Eulàlia, held for five days around February 12th, commemorates the city's patron saint. You can enjoy free concerts all over town, processions of giants and fire-running! Many buildings and museums are free to enter during this period.

Clothes Show Live12 September 2013

Clothes Show Live comes to Birmingham this December. This is the 25th year of what is called 'the ultimate girls' day out'.

We'd recommend staying over with us at the Rotunda after the show. You can reach the show at the NEC by train in under ten minutes from nearby New Street Station.
