Christmas time in Madeira

It seems that the Madeirans become a little crazy about Christmas festivities. The cities are full of lights, music for the occasion and of course giant cribs.


Between the wind and a shy sun, an atmosphere between palm trees and blue hats. Christmas markets offer traditional Ponchas, Nikitas (beer with ice cream) or liquor creams in chocolate cups. It’s a different Christmas, far from white European Christmas, a tropical climate and a little crazy atmosphere that makes you want to stay here.


Tal parece que a los madeirenses se vuelven un poco locos por las festividades navideñas. Las ciudades se llenan de luces, musica para la ocasión y por supuesto pesebres gigantes.

Entre el viento y un sol timido, una atmosfera entre palmeras y gorritos azules. Los mercados de navidad proponen coktailes tradicionales : Ponchas, Nikitas (cerveza con helado) o cremas de licor en vasitos de chocolate. Es un navidad diferente, lejos de la navidad blanca europea, un clima tropical y un ambiente un poco loco que dan ganas de quedarse.
