Christmas has come to Malaga and Malaga is all dressed up ready to reveal its sweetest essence during this festive season.
If the capital of the Costa del Sol is already considered to be a marvelous place then don´t be surprised by how stunning it is during this very special period. Our Christmas Lights Malaga Free Walking Tour will reveal a real Christmas atmosphere in and around the streets of Malaga which can be enjoyed every year.

When the cold weather sets in so does the Christmas spirit. The city dresses up and our Spanish speaking guide takes you around Malaga city centre allowing you to make the most of the colours, carols and marvel at the Christmas lights as well as hearing all about its popular traditions.
Set off on a pleasant walk along Calle Alcazabilla, a pedestrianized street packed with local history and culture; find out about where baubles and tinsel originated from. Continue towards the striking Malaga Cathedral, a Renaissance jewel with its sole tower facing the sea; every year a traditional nativity scene can be enjoyed here.
Malaga Christmas Lights and Sound Show
Shortly after, head towards one of the most popular not to mention world famous streets in the city. We are of course talking about Calle Larios which every Christmas hosts a spectacular light and sound show. Every day hundreds of visitors are amazed by the spectacular show. We will have the chance to witness it for ourselves! Only a few steps away, Plaza Marina features its enormous Christmas tree and as we continue through Paseo del Parque stop to see the many Christmas stalls which make up the most traditional Christmas market during this time of year. Expect to find decorations and handmade Christmas products so you can get a flavor of the moment.
Finally, contemplate one of the most magical scenes in the city, Muelle Uno. Every Christmas it transforms into the most welcoming place on the coast. Here you will find the “Casita de Papa Noel” (Santa´s Grotto) where the real Santa Claus awaits the little ones ready to hear all their Christmas wishes. Expect to find lots of Christmas stalls and for the icing on the cake, sample some garrapiñadas (almonds coated with caramelized sugar) in Sabor a España. Find out where the lottery originated from, where the idea of a Christmas hamper came from and all about the real Santa.
