Barcelona, Spain

Dating back to 1786, the Fira de Santa Llúcia is still going strong in the twenty-first century, with more than 280 stalls selling everything you need to decorate your home for the holidays and enough gifts for your entire family, extended included. Some of the best Spanish nativity scene and figure artists display and sell their wares in front of the Pla de la Seu, and there are additional sections for greenery and plants (moss, eucalyptus branches, artificial trees, and natural cork), crafts (including jewelry, accessories, and housewares), and simbombes (tambourines and other musical instruments to add some funky beats to your revelry).
