It is also believed that our very own Santa Claus or Sinterklaas, as he is known here, visits Alicante and distributes gifts to the kids who are good, and a lump of coal for the naughty ones. Alicante too, makes Santa beam with pride at Christmas by arranging a special grotto, fairy lights, fabulous Christmas trees, festive markets and a museum devoted to Christmas cribs.
Alicante holds a Christmas Market at Avenida de Federico Soto, and the stalls remain open every day from the 1st December to 6th January, except for Christmas and New Years Day. The crafts fair sells an assortment of articles, but mostly collectables for nativity displays.
Come and be a part of all the festivities in this magical land, book your flights now.
