Sweets and Christmas Lights
Christmas sweets and lights are part of Madrid’s Christmas tradition. Christmas is coming and taking a tour to get to know and taste the most typical sweets of the city is always a good plan. The most classic sweets such as “turrón”, “mazapan”, “polvorones” and the famous “roscón de reyes” which come together with the most popular and exquisite shops that can be found on the streets of Madrid.
The market in the Plaza Mayor in Madrid is synonymous with tradition since it has existed since the 19th century. In it you can find all kinds of decorations and Christmas objects such as Christmas nativity and joke items. The market stalls retain their usual decoration similar to the markets of northern Europe with pointed and red roofs.
