Casa de Santa Claus

The House of Santa Claus in the Panteon de Quijano is a must spot. If you’re in Alicante, your Christmas celebration is incomplete without visiting Santa. So, why not let Santa welcome you at his house instead of him visiting yours? You can also be lucky to grab some gifts from Santa!

Ice Skating & Toboggan Run

Christmas is not just about gifts, cakes, and lights. You can also enjoy this festive season while doing some fun activities like ice skating and a toboggan run. Head to Plaza de Toros for the best ice skating and toboggan run experience from the 1st December to the 6th of January from 10:00 to 22:00.
