Never mind the light bulb – la tienda de Jordi Subira

Not much is known about the origins of candle-making, however we do know that the 18th century saw major changes with new wax and new methods. during that time, Subira Cereria was born. Subira Cereria is one of the longest lived and successful shops in Barcelona: it dates back to 1761!

If the candle making trade was first done for the churches, today you can find great birthday candles and fabulous shapes in the store. The antique packaging is a marvel, and did you know they can make anything you want if you come with your own design.

Never mind the introduction of the light bulb in 1879, candles still have their charms and I bet Subira Cereria will still be around for some time.
