What happens in Órgiva is pretty much the same as the UK and Ireland. Most things close on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
We’ve yet to experience a Spanish Christmas and will do a post about Spain’s customs at this time of the year in the next day or so.
In the meantime, here’s our guide to what’s open over Christmas. It’s not a definitive guide but may help those itching to escape after an argument over the cranberry sauce, or who are faced with a disaster. For example, if your oven explodes, Churrería Carmen opposite the church is open for ready-cooked chickens on Christmas Day.
If you know about the opening times of other places, please let us know.
