Mediaeval markets: A fun and fête-ful season to beat the winter blues
13 January 2020 @ 12:15

EVEN with the festive season running a whole 12 days, not ending until the kids go back to school and adults back to the grindstone on the nearest working day to January 7, life can still feel a bit flat at this time of year. But as you've probably come to expect if you live in Spain, there's always something fun on the horizon to beat the January blues.

To cheer everyone up during the 'Crimbo Limbo', the festival of San Antón comes hot on the heels of the Three Kings – daft but cute animal blessings are normally programmed for the closest Sunday to the patron saint's day, January 17, although some hold them the week before – and it is also around this time that Mediaeval market season kicks off.
