Christmas Market in the Plaza Mayor

Nov. 28 - Dec. 31, 2014
Plaza Mayor

Over 100 stalls occupy Plaza Mayor for the annual Madrid Christmas Market. Thankfully, you won't see many touristy knick-knacks, as locals visit this market to buy essential items for a traditional Spanish Christmas. The market dates back to 1860 and is a well-established part of the capital's festive scene. Many vendors sell ornate statues and materials to make a Belén (a traditional nativity scene that is as essential as a Christmas tree in Spanish homes). Fancy dress costumes, tinsel wigs and joke-shop items are also available in abundance.
