Lights that shine, traditions that unite! Experience the magic of the December Puente in Spain

In Spain, the “puente de Diciembre”  marks the beginning of the Christmas season. This puente, also known as the "Constitution Puente" or "Immaculate Conception Puente," spans from the 6th to the 8th of December. During these days, there are various festivities and traditions that people enjoy throughout the country. Some of the standout celebrations include:


  • Constitution Day (December 6th): Constitution Day is celebrated in commemoration of the approval of the Spanish Constitution in 1978. It is a national holiday that marks the transition to democracy in Spain.
  • Immaculate Conception (December 8th): The feast of the Immaculate Conception is a day of great importance for the Catholic community in Spain. Many cities and towns celebrate processions, masses, and religious events in honor of the Virgin Mary.
  • Christmas Decorations: During the December bridge, Spanish cities and towns dress up with Christmas lights and decorations. Streets, squares, and shops are illuminated with bright lights, and many places set up Christmas markets where ornaments, gifts, and typical seasonal products are sold.
  •  Christmas Lights Switch-On: In many cities, the December bridge marks the moment when Christmas lights are officially switched on. Giant Christmas trees, luminous decorations, and festive ornaments transform the cities into magical scenes that attract locals and tourists alike.
  •   Christmas Markets: During this period, it is common to find Christmas markets throughout Spain. These markets offer a variety of products, from handmade gifts to typical seasonal foods such as nougat, marzipan, and roasted chestnuts.


It is a period when cities light up with the magic of Christmas, and people immerse themselves in the festive spirit that characterizes this season.
