The Barcelona Princess Hotel Staff talks about Christmas!

The Barcelona Princess family is not only very extensive, but it is also rich in culture.

Silvia from Portugal -F&B Department-, Lourdes from Ecuador –Housekeeping Department-, Raul from Catalonia -F&B Department- and Moustapha from Senegal –Front Desk Department- did it delighted, and with them we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2015!

Curiosities about Barcelona – Caga Tió: the catalonian Santa Claus

Known also as the ¨Tió de Nadal¨ (Christmas uncle in Catalan), character of mythological origin, tells the Catalan and Aragon’s holiday tradition. One curiositie of Christmas in Barcelona.
On December 8, Feast of the Immaculate Conception, all the Catalan children come with joy to finding their ¨Caga tió¨ or ¨Tió de Nadal¨  and take it to their home and feed it until December 24th.
It is placed in a meaningful space, usually in the main hall; the children feed it every day and covered it with a blanket so do not get cold. When Christmas arrives, on December 24th, tradition dictates that the little ones should lash with batons against the ¨Caga Tió¨ who will give them gifts filling everybody of excitement and joy.
This tradition is related to the Christmas tree, which also carries gifts for the children. From the Barcelona Princess Hotel we want to share this symbol through our Christmas Tree of Dreams.
So we’ve asked both the team and our customers to donate a toy and help us provide grounds to dream to the children of the charity foundation Centre Obert Neus Puig. 
We don’t set a ¨Caga Tió¨ because we hope to collect so many toys that they are not going to fit in.  

One more year of collaboration with the Food Bank of Barcelona

Thanks to the proposed made by workers of the Barcelona Princess Hotel two years ago came a very close cooperation with the Food Bank of Barcelona.
A solidarity campaign that has had great results. Each month, all workers who wish to collaborate donate €1 to send food to needy people, mostly in the Sant Martí District and Forum Area to which we belong.
Parish of Sant Martí
Every three months, the direction of the Barcelona Princess Hotel brings the amount contributed by the entire team of workers and adds the same amount to be destined to a charity purchasing with food products that the Food Bank needs at any given moment.
During this year we have continued with this labour that is not only part of a Barcelona Princess’s team initiative, but it also has become one of the activities that most gratified and proud to all our employees.
Thanks to them and the Food Bank of Barcelona. Of course we pledge to continue during 2015 to work with you and bringing a bit of the Princess family to the neediest sectors of the city!
