History of Christmas lights in Malaga

2014 marked a milestone in Christmas decoration in Malaga, turning the entire Calle Larios into a gothic cathedral of lights. A year later, in 2015 the structure was changed, creating lights in the form of vaults with motifs of stars and moons.

Two years later, in 2017, the Cathedral of Malaga was the protagonist of the Christmas lighting, highlighting the reproduction of some of its stained glass windows and domes, observing scenes of the Nativity and the advent of Christ.

This year 2021, the same decoration structure was repeated in Calle Larios as in 2020, but with the great difference of being able to have the light and music show again.
