PUERTA DEL SOL, THE EPICENTER OF NEW YEAR’S EVE IN MADRID
The emblematic Puerta del Sol in Madrid serves as a hotspot for New Year's Eve celebrations in the Spanish capital. Thousands of locals and tourists gather in this historic square to listen to the traditional twelve bell chimes, marking the start of a new year.
As the clock strikes twelve, the bells of the Real Casa de Correos chime, and following Spanish customs, people eating twelve grapes—one for each stroke of the clock. This ritual is said to bring good luck for each month of the upcoming year.
