Pastelería La Colmena, Plaça del Ángel

The windows of the bakery are filled with all kinds of tempting nougat treats, with different flavours and colours breathing new life into the traditional Christmas decorations.

The house special is a crème brulée nougat, a popular choice bringing customers back to La Colmena each and every year in search of their sugary fix. You can also try lemon, cinnamon, coconut, chocolate, truffle, hazelnut, almond and whiskey nougats.

Sirvent, Carrer del Parlament de Catalunya

In 1920, Tomás Sirvent, the owner of this popular pastry shop, first introduced nougat from Xixona to the Catalan capital. With the idea of offering the very best nougat in Barcelona, he carefully crafted his traditional nougat recipe.

Thousands of almondy nougat slabs are sold every year at Sirvent as his legacy, but they’re not afraid to move with the times either, offering new and exciting flavours to meet even the most demanding tastebuds.

Casa Colomina, Carrer Portaferrisa

Casa Colomina specialises in Christmas treats of all kinds, including nougats, polvorones Christmas cookies, sugar-coated almonds, stuffed almond wafers, marzipan, caramelised delights, and more. Whatever festive treat you can imagine, you’ll find it right here.

The marzipan and guirlache nougats are signature products at Colomina, where handmade and traditional baking methods result in some of the very best nougats around.

With these few options we’ve given you, all you need to do is choose the flavours, making the most of all the best traditional Christmas delicacies with the family this winter.
