From the beginning of December bank holidays to the beginning of January, a multitude of events are held in Peñíscola on the occasion of the Christmas season.

Some of the most popular are the Christmas Market in Plaza Santa María that will take place during the bank holidays and will be extended until December 24 to make way for the Medieval Market that will be held from December 29 to January 1 between Plaça de bous and Plaza Santa Maria.

The religious calendar includes the celebration of the Misa del Gallo, the mass on Christmas day, the day of San Esteban, a local holiday, with the parade of the Music Band; in New Year and the traditional celebration on January 6 in the presence of the Three Wise Men.

Likewise, Peñíscola Castle organizes an interesting conference about the restoration of the site, a magnificent concert of medieval music and some fun historical workshops with an enigma to solve. Likewise, the Palau de Congressos continues its Cultural Circuit with interesting proposals and various cultural associations promote leisure activities.

The New Year's Eve Party includes the distribution of grapes and cava in front of the City Hall and continues with a dance with an orchestra in the Centro de Estudios marquee.

After having been lucky enough to be illuminated by the lights of Ferrero Rocher last year, this Christmas Peñíscola will shine even more if possible with greater lighting of its streets in the old town, its walls and its bastions (see attached brochure).
