Live a dream Christmas in Madrid

By: Áreas Autocaravanas - Published: 30 November, 2022

Oh Christmas… What a magical time. Everyone is carried away by the Christmas atmosphere and, taking advantage of the fact that it is vacation time, a trip to disconnect is never a bad idea. Why not? There are many places that are impregnated with a special aura during these weeks. Among others, one of our favorites at Christmas is the city of Madrid.

The truth is that the Spanish capital is a destination highly sought after by travelers to spend the holidays, since it has a very attractive offer of shows and other types of activities, which reach all types of audiences, whatever their age.

We are going to compile the keys that you must take into account if you are going to spend next Christmas in Madrid. So you will live an unforgettable trip with your family or friends!

Let there be light!

The starting signal for Christmas in Madrid is its traditional lighting. From late November or early December, the entire city dresses up in its best clothes (and lights) to fill its streets and squares with colour. As an outstanding area, without a doubt, the center. The Gran Vía, the Plaza Mayor, the Puerta del Sol and the streets surrounding these main areas are perfect places to walk under a sky of luminaries that give Madrid a very magical touch.

Take advantage of this opportunity and make the pending purchases for your Christmas or Three Wise Men gifts, as you will find hundreds of very varied shops and stalls set up especially for the Christmas season.

Christmas and New Year's Eve in Madrid: Puerta del Sol as a nerve center

If there is a place where sometime in your life you should spend New Year's Eve, "let's say we're talking about Madrid" (paraphrasing the famous song by Joaquín Sabina). Puerta del Sol opens to the public from all over the world every December 31 to say goodbye to the year and welcome the next in one of the most festive atmospheres you can find. Who has not seen it on television at some time, in the famous broadcasts?

So, imagine eating the traditional 12 grapes at the key point of every year-end, to the rhythm of the bells at the Royal Post Office. Of course, we recommend you go with a lot of time, since people are taking places throughout the day. So hurry up!

Another of the traditions of December 31 in Madrid is the emblematic San Silvestre race, which runs from north to south throughout the city to reach the goal located in the Nuevo Vallecas Stadium, where Rayo Vallecano plays its matches. Undoubtedly, a perfect plan for great sports fans.

The Three Kings Parade, the great apotheosis of Christmas in Madrid

How could it be otherwise, Christmas in Madrid ends with the magical Cabalgata de los Reyes Magos. Everyone becomes a boy or a girl again to receive Their Majesties from the East, who come ready to distribute hope and gifts in all the streets they walk during the evening of January 5.

If you have behaved well, you will easily find courtship through the streets of downtown Madrid. On the other hand, if you have not done what you should, you know: Coal!

Other plans in the rest of the Community of Madrid

If you want to take advantage of your trip to visit other points in the region, you will also be right. The truth is that The Community of Madrid has many places to visit with your motorhome. You will see all kinds of natural and cultural enclaves that will also offer you a very unique experience during your trip.
