Seville has its own special colour so says the popular song made famous by the group Los del Rio. A unique golden colour with touches of orange blossom which in the Christmas season heightens the beauty of the city to the highest level. Christmas in Seville is lived and felt with passion for the nativity scenes exhibited in the portals and the three Wise Men.
To visit the capital of flamenco at this time of the year, as well as choosing one of the Petit Palace hotels in Seville, is an ideal option and today we will review with you where are the most authentic Christmas markets in the city. Markets with maximum respect of the traditions, and where you can feel the air of the past and the purely authentic.
– Artisan Christmas Market: this market is one of the most original of all those celebrated in Seville. It is located between Plaza Nueva (New Square), the Town Hall and Seville Cathedral, the popular Giralda. Although it starts at the beginning of November, it is just two weeks before Christmas Eve that a visit is worthwhile. With an outstanding organization which will astound you, more than one hundred artisans meet in this market where you can buy many articles from jewelry or glass to ceramics and toys.
– Seville Capital Christmas Market: football fans and Seville Football Club know this market very well because it is located just a short walk from the Stadium of Nervion (in the neighbourhood of the same name). What does this market have to offer us? Lots of small wood cabins (which also serve as stalls) located between tall buildings and well- known commercial centres, and where you will find clothes made with natural fabrics and top class jewellery.
– The Belen Fair: one of the visits you must make during any visit to Seville at this time is to the Belen Fair, which this year celebrates its13th anniversary. Organized in the Archive of the Indies by the Association of Belen Traders of Seville and in collaboration with the Area of Safety. Mobility and Festivals of the Seville Town Hall, this fair invites about 30 artisans who sell the figurines for the Nativity scenes (Belenes) and typical sweets.
