The Magic Fountain of Montjuic in Barcelona, Spain

 

BARCELONA: THE COSMOPOLITAN CITY

An open and cosmopolitan city, a cradle of artists, and a destination for international travellers, Barcelona has long been known as a social gateway to the world’s cultures.

The Mediterranean Sea, Gaudí’s fantastic forms and colours and the secrets hidden in the Gothic Quarter’s maze of alleys all combine to create a captivating context.

Our proposal to round out the year is a weekend exploring its great variety of markets, craft shops, luxury stores and designer boutiques. There is a seemingly endless supply of options to suit even the most demanding tastes and find the perfect gift.

After a weekend of shopping, Barcelona is also a magical destination to celebrate New Year’s Eve. New Year’s Eve celebrations take place at the bottom of Montjuïc, one of the city’s most special locations. It is a unique experience in which thousands of people eat the traditional twelve grapes of luck at midnight while enjoying a spectacle of fireworks, music, light and water at the famous Magic Fountain of Montjuïc with amazing views of the entire city.

Here is our proposal to make this a unique night, a New Year’s Eve dinner that is a foodie’s delight.

Madrid - Party after New Year’s Eve dinner

 

MADRID: CULTURAL TRADITION WITH A MICHELIN DINNER

Selected in 1992 as the European Capital of Culture, Madrid is one of the most emblematic places in Spain to celebrate New Year’s Eve. One of Spain’s best-known New Year’s Eve traditions is to celebrate at the Puerta del Sol square, which is not only home to the famous Kilometre Zero plaque marking the centre of the Spanish road network, but is also the place where the New Year’s Eve tradition of eating the twelve grapes of luck in time with the chimes of the clock started.

New Year is a time to take stock, smile and take a final look back at the events and experiences of the last twelve months. The combination of contemporary architecture, historic monuments and cultural offerings make Madrid an ideal destination to start the year with renewed energy.

While considering your New Year’s resolutions you can brave the cold and take a stroll through one of the city’s numerous parks and gardens. And if you decide to stay indoors, you can visit some of the city’s countless museums to enjoy exhibitions of works by artists like George Herriman, at the Reina Sofía Museum, or Goya, at the Prado.

In short, there are a thousand and one different ways of ringing in the New Year in Madrid. What they all have in common is a contagious desire to live for the moment while dreaming of the future. If you want to experience this for yourself, we invite you to see in the New Year with our most exclusive gastronomic proposal, created by the Michelin-starred chef Aurelio Morales and the entire CEBO team.
