About Spanish Christmas Lottery and its meaning

Posted by on in Travel spots

On Friday 22nd, the Christmas lottery winner numbers will be announced. An unbelievable amount of money will be destined to lots of lucky individuals who probably can't believe their luck by now. Of course, this is no common prize: we call it El Gordo (meaning “the big one” or “the fat one” ), and is always celebrated during these dates, every year without exception since 1812, when the modern lottery was created in the beautiful city of Cadiz, located in southern Spain, Andalusia, with the purpose of increasing state revenue for the public tax authority. It wouldn’t be until the 1814 that the lottery would first be held in Madrid, the capital, which would later become the very center of Spanish National Lottery drawings, as it’s known today.

To all lovers of architecture out there, the name Gaudi will definitely sound familiar. Considered a pioneer in his field and the face of Catalan modernism, his legacy has embellished Barcelona greatly, attracting tourists from all around the globe. One of the gems he left behind is the famous Park Güell, a large public park built between 1900 and 1914 and composed by gardens and several buildings in which the touch of Gaudí doesn’t go unnoticed.
