The Three Kings

The city welcomes the Three Kings on the most magical night of the year, regaining their traditional parade around the city streets. Find out about everything young children can do to get ready for the arrival of the Three Kings: sending a letter, visiting the Three Kings’ factory, discovering traditions or taking a stroll around the Three Kings Fair.

Three Kings Parade

Their Majesties will be arriving by sea at 3.35 pm and although we won’t be able to welcome them in person, the event will be shown live on Barcelona City Council’s YouTube channel. They’ll be making their way through the streets from 6.15 pm on. The procession can also be followed live on the YouTube channel, and if you decide to go in person, you’ll be able to check where they are in real time via this website.

Letter to the Three Kings

Every Christmas, the Three Kings wait impatiently for the letters from millions of children who, like you, have been good boys and girls all year. Write your letter here and we'll make sure it gets to your favourite king. 

Engineers Workshop

For the first time, we can visit Their Majesties’ engineers at their magical workshop, where they investigate ways of achieving a more sustainable and ecological Christmas.

At the Three Kings’ Engineers Workshop, in the Besòs neighbourhood, you can hand in letters and pacifiers and see the spectacular Eco-Float.
