New Year’s Eve at the symbolic center of Madrid has become more than just a celebration, it’s a global tradition in Spain and beyond.
31 December is a very special celebration, where the fun and partying go on well into the early hours at PUERTA DEL SOL where you will have a great time eating the traditional ‘lucky grapes’
Eating twelve grapes. Tradition has it that you have to eat them one by one, in time with the striking of the clock at midnight on 31 December. If you manage to eat all the grapes in time, you are in for a year of prosperity and good luck. Whether or not you believe in magic, try the experience – it’s great fun!
The rest of the world holds its breath, and cheers as the clocks strike twelve.
