Medieval and Modern Markets
In Xativa for the festive season, there was a medieval market, similar to the one in Concentaina, but no where near as big. It was scattered amongst the old town, and in the old square, which was very atmospheric. The wooden rides and games for the children were in a separate square, near the cathederal.
It was really nice to see the crafts for sale, and smell the home made products. Although not a 'German Market', it certainly reminded me of the cosy traditional feel of christmas markets that are held everywhere.
Further along the main avenue, was the typical modern market, with fun-fair! Here, you could buy the usual handbags, scarves, or hot-dogs! I treated Jess to a hat, and then she succumbed to a candy-floss!
