About Els Llums de Sant Pau

As twilight falls, the magic begins …

Under this motto Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau in Barcelona will open its doors every evening from 23 November 2020 to 10 January 2021 for a very special walk. The sensation is perfect: because Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau will be transformed in this winter for the first time into Els Llums de Sant Pau – an illuminated fairy-tale scenario with Christmassy plays of light, impressively architecture and fanciful illuminations. After it became famous in England in 2014 under the title “Christmas at Kew”, the Christmas Garden has already celebrated an overwhelming success in Germany in the Botanic Garden Berlin since 2016 and in the meantime also in the German cities Stuttgart, Dresden, Münster and the Spanish capital, Madrid.

On an approximately 1.5 kilometre long trail, families, friends and couples can spend a romantic and enjoyable evening. Millions of light points illuminate the dark season and immerse the world renowned UNESCO World Heritage site into a magic blaze of lights! Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau presents itself to its guests during seven festive weeks after dark in a way that this Barcelona jewel has never been experienced before! Els Llums de Sant Pau offers a decelerated break, away from the Christmas hustle and bustle, for the entire family and focuses on the contemplative aspects of the most festive period of the year.
A visit to Els Llums de Sant Pau is an experience that offers both adults and children everything that makes a winter excursion together special.

Highlights of Els Llums de Sant Pau

Els Llums de Sant Pau is a wintry event for all generations. Guests will find here what they are looking for: modernistic architecture, staged nature and a convivial, festive atmosphere. Inner courtyards immersed in tasteful worlds of colour and experience, and glittering lights all over the place let visitors escape from everyday routines into a sparkling, wintry fairy-tale scenery. The outer façade of Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau has already been illuminated for many years during the Christmas period, but this year the visitors will experience much more in the inner courtyards of Sant Pau. Let yourself be enchanted by the “chimes” and stroll through the sparkling trail with a myriad of light chains and genuine, nice resounding little Christmas bells. Visit the “Laser Garden” in which the bewitched paths have been completely newly staged with discreetly set laser beams and dedicated music.
