MALAGA will have more than 500 streets decorated with 1,350,000 lights, as well as The Video Mapping of the south tower of the Cathedral, and a new Drone Light Show, which can be seen from the Palmeral de las Sorpresa, Plaza de la Marina, Muelle Uno and Gibralfaro.
The big switch on is Saturday November 26th 7pm, they will last 40 days, the last night being 6th January. They will be on daily from 6:30 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. and on weekends and the eve of holidays, from 6:30 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.
The Christmas decoration on Calle Larios, this year, is called “Celestial Angels,
composing of 16 angels in 32 lateral columns, as well as 32 stelae or bursts.
These 4-meter-tall angels will welcome people on Larios Street, with their 12-meter-long tails, designed with effervescent effects, starting warm white and ending in a pure white full flash, like trails that melt as they pass. Decorated with glitter of dichroic leaves to be able to shine also during the day.
The musical show on Calle Larios will be at: 6:30 p.m., 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
The video mapping on the Cathedral will be from November 27th to January 4th, (except December 24th & 31st) at 6:30 p.m., 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. The best place to see the show is at the crossroads between Calle Molina Lario and Calle Postigo de los Abades.

Enjoy browsing The Christmas Markets. People come from all over the world to see the lights. Whilst in Malaga why not visit El Pimpi and the oldest Bodega in Malaga: Antigua Casa de Guardia.
ABOUT EL PIMPI
Opened in 1971, El Pimpi is situated inside an old 18th century Málaga mansion house and is one of the longest-standing bodega bars in Málaga, where you can enjoy local food & wines and, above all, the culture & traditions of southern Spain.
Its name harks back to the ‘Pimpi’, a local Málaga character who used to help the crews and passengers from the ships that arrived at the city’s docks. Before long, they had become the first Málaga tour guides, famous for their service and good humour.
Generations of personalities from the worlds of flamenco, politics and the arts have visited our rooms & hallways: the Picasso Family, Carmen Thyssen, La Repompa, Antonio Banderas, The Duchess of Alba, amongst many others that bear witness to the bodega’s history. These days it’s a place to get together for celebrities, Malagueños and visitors alike, who go on to recommend us, rating us as one of the top cultural and culinary destinations in Málaga.
