Madrid at Christmas. A city with charm
All we know that Madrid is a very special city. Its privileged geographical location, in the center of the peninsula, and its unbeatable communication with the main points of the country, makes it the ideal place to come to spend these Christmas holidays.
Madrid welcomes with affection all those who visit it, without asking where they come from. This warm hospitality gives the city a special charm, and makes it the perfect place for a Christmas getaway.
Any corner of the capital is worth visiting, but here we want to make a small presentation of those places you can not miss.
5 must-see places to visit in Madrid at Christmas time
The Plaza Mayor of Madrid is one of the most beautiful squares in Europe, and perhaps the most beloved by the people of Madrid. Its location, in the heart of the historic center and its spectacular architecture makes it one of those places that can not miss on your visit to Madrid. In addition, now during the month of December is installed the traditional Christmas market, where you can buy gifts and figurines to complete your Bethlehem, joke items, etc..
And right next to the Plaza Mayor, we find the Mercado de San Miguel (St Miguel’s market). This beautiful glass enclosure, is a real gastronomic temple of the city, where we can taste all kinds of dishes, both Spanish and international, and replenish energy, to continue visiting the city.
Something that can not be missing in any Christmas in a Bethlehem. This wonderful tradition, imported from Naples and dating back to the time of Charles III, enchants children and those who still carry a child in their hearts. The main Nativity scenes can be found in the Royal Palace, in the Monastery of the Descalzas Reales, in the open-air Nativity scene in the Plaza de la Villa, the traditional open-air Nativity scene in the Puerta de Alcalá, etc.
The whole city looks spectacular with the lighting that is put up for these dates, but we want to recommend a special place to contemplate, the Botanical Garden. Until January 6th you can see the show “Naturaleza Encendida” (Lit Nature) that turns the Royal Botanical Garden of Madrid into a place full of magic and color, ideal for the whole family.
And of course, what you can not miss on a trip to Madrid is to visit the Gran Via and its surroundings.
