One of the most classic destinations at Christmas is the traditional visit to the Spanish capital of Madrid. Madrid displays all its charm during the festive season, in addition, the city offers us several essential events to see and capture those special Christmas moments.
The Christmas Tree at the ‘La Puerta del Sol’, the popular Christmas Market with nativity scenes at the ‘La Plaza Mayor, the switching on of the Christmas lights on the ‘Gran Vía’ main street, the very famous Spanish tradition of eating twelve grapes to bring luck at the famous “Puerta del Sol” clock tower; just some of the reasons why Madrid is a must place to visit at Christmas.
Lleida is another popular destination in Spain for Christmas. We invite you to travel to the town of Sort, here the most superstitious people will find the home of the well-known Spanish national Christmas Lottery. Why? Because in Sort you will find the most popular Lottery Administration in Spain, called “The Bruixa d'Or”, which each year hands out millions of euros in prize money to many lucky winners. Why not visit Sort and buy a lottery ticket, just in case?
The next destination we suggest for a visit during Christmas is the place where you can discover the secrets of one of the most important Christmas delicacies that is produced in Spain; Spanish ‘Turrón’ (nougat). Let's go to the Turrón Museum! The museum is located in Jijona, Alicante and here you can experience how this exquisite product is made and get to taste some of the best nougat in the world. Jijona has been producing this amazing nougat and also marzipans for over 500 years and here you will also have the chance to purchase some for your Christmas table.
