The first city in Europe to experience chocolate, Barcelona was the first place to have a chocolate-making machine back in the 18th century. Now, the Museo de la Xocolata offers visitors a glimpse into the magic of big and small sweets making.

If you are a real chocolate lover, you will definitely enjoy seeing chocolate sculptures, doing tastings, and even painting with chocolate. During Christmas, you can bake and decorate cookies with the family or become a chocolate artist and learn how to manipulate and sculpt them.

Also, you can visit chocolate restaurants such as La Pallaresa and La Granja. Here you can enjoy tasting churros and having a cup of hot chocolate. There is a pleasant atmosphere here, so these are ideal places for chocolate lovers during the Christmas holidays in Barcelona.
