Christmas food Barcelona 

What do they eat at Christmas in Barcelona Spain?A typical Christmas dish is “Escudella i carn d'olla” This is a tasty bowl (escudella means bowl) of pasta shells "galets" in a meat and vegetable stew or soup. Another typical Catalan Christmas dish is the delicious "
carn d'olla"  which is a meat dish of stuffed capon or turkey.

A typical Christmas dessert in Spain and Barceona is “Turrón,” which is on sale at Christmas markets and supermarkets everywhere in Barcelona. Traditional turrón is nougat made with almonds, hazelnuts and honey. Turrón now comes is many delicious varieties. 

Christmas bread in Catalonia is called “El Pa de Nadal” and sold all over Barcelona.

Not all restaurants are open in Barcelona at Christmas. Generally the bigger chain restaurants and the hotel restaurants open during Christmas, but to avoid disapointment we recommend contacting restaurants to check their Christmas opening times and to make a reservation.
