Bilbao is a city where you can enjoy its gastronomy and its monuments throughout the year. But at Christmas the city takes on a new color to accommodate some activities that you cannot miss if you are planning a visit during the upcoming holidays. We tell you about some of them: The main Christmas market in Bilbao is located on Calle Bailén , in the heart of the city. In its 40 booths you can find everything from the typical Christmas decorations to craft products and Basque cuisine. Get into the Christmas spirit from December 5 to January 6 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. There is also the Bilbao Craft Fair 'Gabonart' next to the Arriaga Theatre. Here you can pick up a Christmas gift, since at their stalls you will find precious ceramics, costume jewellery, leather, jewelry, wood or textiles. Lastly, the Santo Tomás Fair is not a Christmas market in Bilbao itself, but this festivity represents the beginning of Christmas for the city. It is celebrated on December 21 in the Plaza Nueva and the surrounding streets of El Arenal, very close to our hotel. On this special day the streets are filled with local music, shows and you can also taste the most popular local products.
