  1. Hi Tony! I’m from Singapore and will be visiting Spain during the X’mas festive period (landing in Madrid on 24th Dec actually). I know that most attractions in Madrid will be closed on Xmas day and hence was thinking of doing a day trip to Toledo or Segovia on that day.

    Do you think it is advisable? Will the attractions or shops and restaurants be open in these cities?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    • Hello Kenneth, welcome to Road Trip Spain & Portugal. We would not advise you to go to Toledo or Segovia on Christmas Day as you will find many attractions close on that date. It would be better to stay in Madrid and prioritize open air activities (like the Retiro Park or the Madrid Río park). 25th December is a critical day everywhere in Spain. You will, however, not have many problems to find restaurants opened.
      All the best!
