Christmas at Port Vell

Local markets - Flea markets

Port Vell celebrates Christmas for the third consecutive year, again at the Moll de Bosch i Alsina, better known as Moll de la Fusta, which will be transformed into an avenue of light. The careful Christmas decoration will unite the land and the sea, and its main element this year will not be the led tree that accompanied us in the two previous editions, but a large zenith installation of LEDs and a giant Christmas ball. In addition to the lighting installations, the Port Fair, which this year is celebrated under the slogan Nadal a bon port (Christmas to a good port), offers visitors every day musical performances by schools, choirs and other entities, a 65-meter Ferris wheel and a traditional merry-go-round, and a market with stalls and gastronomy. But this is not all, the Christmas Fair in Port Vell will also have an educational section with activities such as Let's sail together, in which the operation of the port will be explained to the little ones, and other participatory and solidarity activities on the environment and the food bank.

The elements of lighting installations

  • The main element: a zenith installation 200 meters long by 20 meters wide with 25,000 LEDs that will represent a sky with stars and figures of retro ships.
  • The giant Christmas ball: a 12-meter high ball with RGB pixel technology that can be entered and that will screen various audiovisual shows.
  • The manger and the eastern star: they will float in the sea on a platform. The manger will be 6 meters high and the star 2.8 meters. Both elements will illuminate the water.
  • Other elements: the street lamps in the area will be illuminated and access doors will be installed in the form of gift boxes that will be illuminated.

The Santa Eulàlia Pailebote and the Barcelona Lighthouse

The most emblematic ship in the port, the Pailebote Santa Eulàlia, and the Barcelona Lighthouse will be decorated and can be visited.
