Plaça Catalunya becomes a place to take part in Christmas festivities from December 22 to January 4. This year, the stars of the show will be the ingravidolles, giant spheres that convey the feelings and emotions of weightlessness we feel as holidays approache. Barcelona will become a city of 800,000 ingravidolles, each representing one of the 800,000 homes in the city. For a perfect holiday, BCN Apartment Rentals offers you the best luxury apartments in the heart of Barcelona, with the best design, location, security and comfort.
