Santa Maria Maggiore Christmas market

The village of Santa Maria Maggiore takes on a magical air.

We look forward to welcoming you to Santa Maria Maggiore in Valle Vigezzo for three enchanting days of pure Christmas magic. With more than 200 stalls decked out in a chalet style, the traditional Christmas market brings a warm glow to the streets and little piazzas dotted around the historic village. Typical sights to behold along the way include the evocative fire pits carved out of fir trunks and all manner of different treats to try at various food stalls, from mulled wine and traditional “Stincheet” oatcakes through to roasted chestnuts and local dishes.
