The famous “Puente de Diciembre” (December’s long weekend) is coming soon and this year it will extend from Friday December the 3rd (for those who do not work on weekends) until wednesday December the 8th. This is probably Spain’s most long-awaited long weekend and most of us are planning our trips on these dates. Most of the travel agencies advertise several long weekend discounts, but it is always hard to decide where to go. If you have a limited budget, we recommend you to travel to Barcelona in December and save money by staying in one of the apartments in Barcelona we recommend.
