According to the Chinese calendar, the Year of the Goat begins February 19th—a year in which it's customary for families to find a way to reunite and reconcile. Experience the celebration of the Chinese New Year live at the Chinese Lantern Festival. Located in the Parc del Fòrum, 500 illuminated figures cover 9,000 square metres and are distributed into eight thematic areas. Together the different areas combine the many curiosities surrounding Chinese culture and tradition, the secrets of the majestic Oriental lanterns, the styles and characteristics of Art Nouveau, the seasons, the Nativity scene and the Catalan cultural inheritance of Gaudí, Miró and Picasso. Both children and adults can enjoy this magical world of colours, shapes and culture, allowing themselves to be transported for the night from Barcelona to the fantasyland of the Lantern Festival, celebrated in China since the first century.
