Mercado de Navidad del Pueblo Español
We're all familiar with the famous Christmas markets of the big northern European cities – Vienna, Prague, Tallinn, Strasbourg and of course Manchester – where the Christmas spirit is on sale along with hot chocolate, mulled wine, sausages, and all you'd need to decorate your festive grotto. Well, Palma's no different as you'll be able to get all of those things as well as, tah dah, real artificial snow!
Yes, this festive scene will be taking place in the 'Mercado de Navidad del Pueblo Español' from the 1st to 10th December – just in time for Christmas. As you probably know the Pueblo Español is a 60's (the decade not the age group) tourist attraction in Palma which, as a typical 'Spanish Town' contains replicas of some of the country's most iconic buildings.
So against a backdrop of buildings from Granada, Cordoba, Toledo, Burgos, Segovia and so on, you can shop for gifts from 80 stalls, listen to live music from choirs and bands, eat tapas, drink mulled wine, and palm you kids off on Father Christmas when they're worn out from playing in the real artificial snow!
All this comes at a price, €5 which isn't bad considering that you're getting a free visit to a tourist attraction and you can stay as long as you like from 12 to 23 each day.
Merry Christmas everybody!
