Winter is one of the times of the year with the most family tradition. The cold, Christmas and customs are the main drivers of our moments and experiences with our family members. When winter arrives, Girona prepares itself to host and offer activities for all families, from the youngest to the oldest.
Therefore, we invite you to gather moments by the people you love, while having fun and enjoying unique shows and events. The following are 5 activities in Girona that you can do as a family in winter: circus, theatre, cinema, ice-skating and magical visitors from the East.

Grand Christmas Circus of Girona proposes a totally new spectacle every year. It is the sum of the magic of Christmas, the humour of the new generation of Caluga clowns and the top 30 stars of the legendary Great Circus of China. The Fontajau Sports Hall is used to host this event every year.
A tradition never missed at any Girona Christmas with The Pastorets on December. The Municipal Theatre of Girona hosts the typical theatre play par excellence at the Christmas holidays in many places in Catalonia.
Each year, the Pastorets (little shepherds) keep their trademark: the birth of Jesus, the angels and demons, and the lives and conversations of shepherds who remember the first Christmas. Having said that, each edition is a new version of the play with new features, surprises, songs, sets, projections and more than a hundred participants.
The seventh art is also a great plan for the whole family. It is a great way to warm up as we venture into new worlds. In Girona there are a total of three cinemas: OCINE Girona, Cinemes Albéniz and Cinema Truffaut. This year, as every winter, you will find a very interesting family film offer.
Girona Trade Fair Hall will turn into an ice rink. Girona's Ice Rink is one of the largest indoor ones in Catalonia and is expected to be visited by about 17,000 people every year.
What would Christmas be like without the most magical visit of the year in Girona? At 6 pm on every January 5, thousands of excited boys and girls look forward to the arrival of the three Magi of the East: Melchior, Gaspar and Balthasar. The world's most beloved magi arrive in town with a show featuring juggling, floats, music, dancing and magic to soak up energy and vitality for the most important night of the year.
