hi -- i will be there on Xmas with my three children age 23, 21 and 17 (boy-girl-boy) . We are taking day trips a few of the days to Montserrat and Girona and was wondering if anyone had suggestions for local things to do in Barcelona on Xmas that might be open or meaningful for that day (we are not super religous but my daughter and I always appreciate the beauty of a church...not so sure about my sons).
Also, any suggestions in general that my boys (17 and 23) might be interested to do in the city. They are huge football fans and doing the stadium tour one day and i'm sure will be watching the game somewhere on 23rd but if you have travelled there with boys in late teens/early 20s and have suggestions other than museums, architecture, etc. (which my daughter and I love), would love to hear them.
