Thirty carriages equipped with around 7000 kilos of sweets traditionally wind their way through Madrid's streets from Retiro Park to the Plaza Mayor via Sol. However, recent building works have meant that some years the parade has taken a different route. Check this year's itinerary with the Madrid tourist office before you show up.
