In this publication we are going to talk about one of the most classic traditions of these festivities. This of course, is clear that it would be, about the Three Wise Men and how we enjoy the coming of the Three Kings in Benidorm.
And it is that, the tradition in our country was to wait for the arrival of the three wise men of the East who came loaded with gifts for the whole family.
The traditional thing was to wait for the children to get up on the 6th of January to find their gifts upon awakening. For this reason, they spent much of the night without a wink of sleep, due to nerves. The whole family, from the largest to the smallest, awaited with great expectation to see what the 3 Kings Melchor, Gaspar and Balthasar had brought them; as long as they had behaved well ... Sometimes the prankster Kings deposited the gifts in the most unusual places in the house, to cause more emotion; meanwhile, other times they left the gifts in the living room of the house, at the foot of the bed, under the stairs or by the fireplace ...
It was also common to find some lucky houses, in which the Kings left the gifts on January 5, just after performing the procession of the 3 Kings.
We have talked about this as though it is in the past because this is what was done exclusively. There was no Santa Claus in most cases, and if there was, it was as a prelude to the 3 Kings, by leaving a small gift. Even so, we can count on the privilege of living in a country in which the Three Wise Men of the East continue to be an indispensable and very endearing tradition.
The difference between those children of a couple of decades ago and the children of this recently inaugurated digital era, is simply that the gifts tend now to be divided, or doubled in the case of many privileged children.
Who nowadays does not write a letter to both Santa Claus and to the 3 Kings?
The night of Kings in Benidorm
As for the Twelfth Night, we continue to enjoy this night with great emotion. Therefore, if you decide to visit Benidorm for Christmas, you will be in awe with this colourful procession of the Three Wise Men in Benidorm in which the great hosts (not the protagonists) will be the Three Wise Men.
In short, the Kings will also enter in a very silent way into the rooms of Servigroup Hotels to leave their best gifts. So, from our hotels, your children will keep that magic smile that we never want them to lose.
In any of the nine hotels in Benidorm, you and your family can enjoy a spectacular tribute to the Three Wise Men, in which you will cannot miss its delicious and "surprising" roscón de reyes (cake of Kings).
The 3 Kings procession in Benidorm
Once again, the procession of the Three Kings Benidorm 2019, will return to parade through the most central and emblematic streets of Benidorm on January 5th, with a route and a staging that will not cease to surprise you, even with the passage of years.

The parade will conclude, as always, in the Plaza SS.MM. Kings of Spain (The Town hall), which for a few more hours, will continue to be the Christmas square in Benidorm.
There will be the traditional delivery of gold, incense and myrrh to the Baby Jesus at the Bethlehem scene.
It will be at the end, that the great protagonists of this event, the children, will be able to greet and take pictures with their favourite King.
The party will then continue in the Christmas square, where you will be able to have enjoy and have fun with all the attractions and the spectacular skating rink.
You can also take your children to the miniature reconstruction of Bethlehem town, located on the Gambo street in Benidorm, a few meters from the square. A more than ideal place, to take the best photos of this night of Kings 2019.
