The streets are already illuminated: Christmas is near! It is time to prepare the gift for the grandmother, father, aunt or invisible friend. Family meals and Christmas evenings are coming to life as a family. But, before living all this, there are some essential places that yes or yes they have to visit. From the Unihabit university residences we propose you three towns or fairs of Catalonia to visit this Christmas.

From the Unihabit university residences to the Fira de l’Avet, in Espinelves

The Fira de l’Avet d’Espinelves, in the region of Osona, is one of the essential Christmas fitas. Any lover of Christmas and small villages with charm should visit it! The Fir Fair is one of the best-known Christmas fairs in Catalonia. All the streets of the villages are full of fir trees, the tree to make the Christmas decoration at home, crib figures and any other characteristic element of Christmas.

It leaves from the Unihabit university residences and goes to lose yourself all day long in the village. You’ll love it. Remember you have time until December 9th!
