The magic of Christmas isn’t over just yet, certainly not for the kids anyway. On the night of January 5th—the eve of the Día de los Reyes Magos—the Three Kings arrive in Barcelona ready to deliver presents to the city’s children. And they certainly arrive in style. This huge parade collects children’s wish lists as it makes its noisy way from Port Vell to Plaça Espanya. Barcelona has the honour of being home to the factory where all these presents are carefully made. The Fabra i Coats art factory is the Santa’s Grotto of Spanish Christmas, and visitors can see the Kings’ assistants working hard and making the gifts, ready to be delivered on the 5th. The colour and lights, displayed from the windows of the three floors of the Creation Factory, make for a magical trip to the factory. This artistic façade is the work of artist Xevi Bayona, and the Reyes Factory is the project of the District of Sant Andreu. They have joined forces to ensure that the festive spirit continues right through all twelve days of Christmas.
