The Christmas market can be found in the park that runs next to the Plaza de la Marina, close to the Pompidou Centre.  You can find figurines , shepherd costumes, tambourines, and sweets, alongside necklaces, rings and earrings handmade for that perfect Christmas gift. The markets provide an amazing opportunity to take a lovely walk whilst finding gifts to put under the tree this year.
