The Plaza Mayor is the meeting point and the heart of Madrid at Christmas. Nativity scenes, Christmas trees and other paraphernalia are found here. Numerous cafes around (like the mythical San Gines) offer comforting traditional hot chocolate with churros and dozens of shops in the square are perfect to find original gifts for Reyes, from hats to fans made by hand by expert artisans.
The big Christmas news this year in Unique Hotel Madrid is certainly the Christmas Tree dressed exclusively for the hotel by Angel Schlesser with dozens of gold and large chocolate coins. Flagship store for Schlesser is just around the corner and is the ideal place to buy a stunning dress and the rest (bags, belts, shoes, gloves and wallets) to succeed the New Year night. Only women’s wear.
