Plaza Mayor Christmas Market holds an interesting history: In the 17th century, Santa Cruz Square hosted a Christmas market where fruit and vegetables were sold, as well as holiday decorations and presents. In the 19th century, the venue was established in this place and a regulation was drawn up to regulate sales. Since then, Plaza Mayor became a big market that sold turkey, nougat and sweets. Santa Cruz Square mostly had on stands that were selling Nativity Scene figures, Christmas musical instruments, toys and decoartions. In the 1980s, the awnings were replaced with houses, an important change which remains to the present day. Do not miss an opportunity to enjoy and discover Madrid with BE Apartment.
