The Three Kings Parade 2019

The Three Kings of the Orient arrive on 5 January, signalling the start of the most magical night of the year.

Their Majesties Gaspar, Melchior and Balthasar will be arriving at the Moll de la Fusta wharf on board the schooner Santa Eulàlia at 4 pm on 5 January. As ever, they’ll be accompanied by their entourage of fantastic creatures and royal messengers, ready to collect people’s last-minute wishes before the magical night begins. After being welcomed by the Mayor and handed the keys to the city, which open the door of every home, the royal group will set off on their parade around the streets of Barcelona, ending up at the Magic Fountain in Montjuïc around 9 pm.

This year’s parade is headed by Senyor Hivern (Mr.Winter) and the Gran Llibre de les Coses Petites (Big Book of Little Things) and the rest of our Christmas protagonists, making their way along under a shower of snowflakes and moving to the rhythm, chords and melodies of live music. Naturally, the royal floats and all the iconic figures for the parade will be involved, such as the pages Estel and Gregori, the royal messengers, characters collecting dummies from toddlers giving them up, floats full of toys, and, at least one full of coal for kids who haven’t been good! Sweet throwers will be there too, showering Barcelona’s children with sweets to bid Christmas farewell with the sweetest of smiles!

Advice during the event

  • Always follow the instructions of the security staff.
  • Remember that the main dangers arise from the floats passing by and climbing on objects such as containers, traffic lights, signs, etc. Never get in the way of the procession or climb on any objects. Always use your common sense: do not put yourself or your children at risk during the celebrations.
  • Always stay behind the barriers and safety signs on the procession route.
  • Do not speak or make any signs that could distract the security staff, anyone walking alongside the floats or anyone driving them, unless you are reporting an accident or emergency.
  • Never go up to or try to climb on board a float.
  • Never crouch down on the route to pick up any sweets in front of the floats, as you may get in the way of those coming behind.
  • Never cross between the floats, or go up to them when they stop or fill up with fuel.
  • Do not throw sweets at security staff, at the people on the floats or at anyone watching the procession.
  • Once the event is over, leave your area in an orderly fashion, keeping to the exit order and following the instructions of the security services.
  • If you notice any incident, you should inform a member of the security staff immediately and, if necessary, call 112.

  • 5 star ratingBest part of our holiday! Visited Barcelona in mid August having pre-booked a one hour segway tour. My wife has a back complaint and hadn't ridden so much as a bike in years. She was naturally reluctant to give it a go. My eldest son wasn't keen on the idea, he reckoned it would be boring. Why do I bother I thought!

    When we look back at the fun times we had in Barcelona we all...

  • 5 star ratingFantastic! The Segway tour was the best way to experience what Barcelona has to offer. Our guide, Pierre, was fantastic and showed us the main attractions while making us feel comfortable. This is my fourth time in Barcelona but today I got to see loads of new places and Pierre gave great restaurant recommendations too. Very fun!

  • 5 star ratingBest way to explore Barcelona This was a great couple of hours spent exploring the city, seeing the main sights but also unknown, off the beaten track, places that you would never discover on your own. Very informative guide and so friendly too. An absolute must do!
