Things to do Free tour of Madrid at Christmas

You cannot miss the route that we have prepared for you. And the thing is that in Madrid Christmas is already breathing through all its arteries!

On this route we will visit the center of the capital, where we will be amazed by the spectacular urban lighting. We will enjoy the traditional Christmas market in the Plaza Mayor. Did you know that this square is more than 400 years old and that it has housed these traditional stalls for more than a century and a half? It is a must in a privileged setting.

We will walk along the Calle Mayor until we reach Puerta del Sol, where we will delight ourselves with the great Christmas tree and where we will tell you, in detail, the history of the famous Chimes and the Twelve Grapes, a tradition of Spanish origin. In this square you can also enjoy the traditional Bethlehem of the Royal Post Office, a stage with more than 400 figures made by hand for the occasion. Quite a show!

We will go up Calle del Carmen to see the famous lottery administration of Doña Manolita. It is the most popular and traditional in Spain. Open since 1904, a true Christmas icon!

We will arrive at Plaza de Callao and continue along Gran Vía, contemplating that explosion of light and color in which the Madrid sky is transformed at Christmas. And, of course, the show that their decked out shops give us at this time. You will discover with our guides the history of this artery of the capital.

We will go down to the Fuente de Cibeles, from where we can see the decoration of the Palacio de Correos (current Mayor's Office) and the Puerta de Alcalá, and we will talk about the traditional route of the Cavalcade of the Magi from the East.

We will finish our route in the Plaza de Colón where we can photograph what, without a doubt, will be the undisputed protagonist of this Christmas: the illuminated Giant Menina. A work by Antonio Azzato, ten meters high. An original Christmas tree adorned with more than 37,000 lamps and dressed with a design from the heirs of Andrés Sardá.
