Shopping in the neighbourhood has its reward

Gift cards

The gift cards are intended to boost local commerce and recognise regular customers in neighbourhood establishments.

If you do your shopping in neighbourhood establishments or the city’s markets this Christmas, you’ll receive ‘Barcelona Commerce Christmas Scratchcards’, with a chance at a string of prizes. In all, 600,000 scratchcards have been distributed, and 20,433 of them have a gift for you!

With the support of Barcelona City Council, the city’s commercial establishments and markets have organised a gift card campaign to promote shopping in local establishments in the city. The initiative is intended as a way of recognising regular customers in neighbourhood establishments.

Of the 600,000 cards distributed equally around the whole city, 20,432 contain prizes for people to enjoy culture, sports, restaurants and leisure in Barcelona. At the same time, all of the cards include a code for people to download the Barcelona Christmas song, by the singer and composer Paula Valls. An upbeat song, full of hope, positive spirit and bags of energy.

Check out the terms and conditions and list of prizes.

Barcelona Christmas Song

Barcelona has its own Christmas carol this year, for the first time. And the person tasked with composing it was the singer-songwriter, Paula Valls. It’s a call for hope and positive spirit which talks of the little things of daily life. The lyrics are an ode to optimism and zest that also reminds us how nothing has been easy over the last few months. We hope you enjoy it!

  • It's Christmas
