Christmas in Madrid

By: Ariadna Fernandez

Madrid is one of the cities that gathers the bigger number of tourists this time of year. During the months of November and December a lot of tourists pack their suitcases to come to the capital of Spain that is really lovely during Christmas time, making it difficult to find madrid accommodation or a room in one of the hostels madrid center. One of the most appreciated areas is the Plaza Mayor, found in the center of Madrid, is the one that connects the neighborhood la Latina with the Sol area, you can find here street theater performances (mime, shows for children…) and, during Christmas, we can find here a market of stalls that sell all types of holiday stuff (such as Bethlehem figurines, balls for the Christmas tree, tinsel and all necessary accessories to decorate your house during holiday).
Another touristic thing that most calls the visitors of Madrid are the Christmas lights, that are designed every year by different artists and which can be seen in Plaza Mayor, in Plaza of Puerta del Sol or on the central streets of Castellana. In the center of the city is where you should also look for apartments rent Madrid, due to the fact that finding accommodation Madrid here helps you stay more connected to everything going on in the city. The options for business accommodation Madrid are also less this time of year, so it would be better to search in advance.

Even though the most marked and well known by tourists action is celebrating New Year´s Eve in the Puerta del Sol, eating the grapes surrounded by thousands of people gathered there for the same purpose, Madrid has many nooks and crannies in which to enjoy the holidays, having a good chocolate with churros and truncheons (so traditional and searched by everybody), eating a good Madrid stew in the traditional neighborhood of la Latina, boating in Retiro Park or walking among the beautiful trees covered with snow.
