For a memorable start to your Christmas, escape to Spain and Portugal and discover the festive delights of destinations bursting with yuletide spirit. At each you’ll see Christmas lights and decorations, and get to explore traditional festive markets; mid-December evenings in Funchal, with its family feel and evening festivities, make for a magical experience, while the Spanish and Portuguese cities will be alive with friendly locals counting down to and getting ready for the big day.
What’s more, your overnight stay in Funchal allows ample time to seek-out Madeira’s ‘Garden Island’ sights too; perhaps wander through forested landscapes via the levada trails, explore botanical gardens, or see the Atlantic Ocean vistas from Cabo Girao. A day in Lisbon is a chance to delve into the Portuguese capital’s maritime heritage and local culture too and, in Spain, there are picturesque coasts, historic quarters and ancient monuments and landmarks aplenty to uncover in Vigo, Cádiz and La Coruña.
