Tradition: Christmas lights in Malaga.
Christmas is fast approaching and cities are starting to switch on their Christmas lights as part of the decorations.
This is a time of year full of traditions when families and friends get together to end the year together and welcome the new one. It is also a time of gifts and solidarity.
Malaga is also one of the most charming places to enjoy the Christmas lights. In fact, the European Best Destinations portal has included it as one of the 20 most beautiful cities in Europe during the festive season and has valued, among other things, the innovation of its lights.
One of the essential streets to visit is Calle Larios where you will be able to enjoy a vault of light known as ‘The Christmas Forest‘. It is also expected that streets such as those around the Cathedral and the Plaza del Obispo, Calle Nueva, the Alameda and Paseo del Parque will have extra lighting.
On the other hand, among the novelties of this Christmas there will be a video mapping in the Cathedral’s Mocha tower and the new lighting of Calle San Juan, the Alameda, the Plaza de La Marina or the Park are some of the novelties this year in the emblematic areas.
Calle San Juan is going to play a special role this year. Two different spaces have been set up in one section of the street, one called ‘Salón de Arañas’ (Hall of Spiders) and the other called ‘Jardín Encantado‘ (Enchanted Garden).
Likewise, this Christmas the Alameda takes on a new prominence in accordance with its new image after its urban renovation. Thus, it presents an elegant lighting and a spectacular decoration both day and night made up of 500 LED strings formed by shiny leaves with dichroic lights (two colours or bull’s eye) to enhance the reflection of the sun. The strings have a drop of 2.5 metres and three metres so that they can be enjoyed from far and near the street.
The decoration of the Plaza de La Marina and the Park consists of a total of 14 arches, seven in each of these spaces, with a decoration with a strong children’s accent as they reflect candy or lollipops in multiple colours.
Also new is the musical background with a Christmas atmosphere which will be installed in Calle San Juan itself, as well as in Calle Nueva, Calle Puerta del Mar and Calle Larios.
This musical thread will be made up of performances by artists from Malaga.
