Alicante is a very special city, but it is even more on Christmas. Gently enlightened, the Christmas spirit conquers the city and offers all kind of activities to enjoy the most magical time of the year. Furthermore, if these Christmas days you are housed at Apartments Tito, you will enjoy the Christmas decorations and the atmosphere that filled the historic city center.
What to do in Alicante during Christmas
The great focus of Camí de Nadal 2017 will be the kids. Thus, many of these activities are designed for children to feel all the magic of Christmas.
In La Ereta Park we will find the House of Santa Claus. Apart from receiving one of the main characters of this time of year, it will also house craft workshops, to encourage the creativity of the children. To enjoy the outdoors of the city, a mountain with descents in sledges will also be installed in the Plaza de la Montañeta.
But if there is something that cannot be missing in a Christmas celebration, is the atmosphere created by the Three Wise Men’s day parade. Alicante will receive the Magi on January 5, in an one-hour parade through the most emblematic streets of the city. The parade ends at Plaza del Ayuntamiento, Town Hall Square, where an ice rink will be installed.
The elderly will enjoy the great variety of markets that will complement the streets of the city. The Mercadillo de la Cascaruja and the Porrate will be opened until Christmas Day. From then on, the Craft Market will take its place. Both are the perfect place for us to find gifts, but also to enjoy the traditional Christmas gastronomy of the Mediterranean, such as mantecados, Christmas sweets, and marzipans, but above all, the famous turrones of Jijona.
In addition to street activities, the theaters will be filled with performances suitable for all ages. The Main Theater will host, among others, the Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet ballet and will welcome 2018 with the traditional New Year’s Concert.
