Like last year, the central street will host two shows every day: at 6:30 p.m. and at 9:30 p.m. and it will last about eight minutes, since the three songs will be played in a row. As could be seen in the premiere, for this year more Christmas songs have been chosen and the lights shine at a somewhat slower pace than the previous year.

Until next January 6, when Their Majesties the Magi of the East leave all their bags full of gifts in the houses of the people of Malaga, about two million points of light will illuminate the streets of the capital. All the bulbs are low consumption and have involved an investment of 573,211 euros in the emblematic areas of the city. On this occasion, Calle Larios, has been decorated with a vault with about 2,630 microled cords, two domes and 18 porticos with windows, stained-glass windows and cathedral-style rosettes that have been made looking as close as possible to that of Malaga.

Christmas will light up this year in Malaga for 44 days and to avoid traffic incidents as a result of the high number of people who come to see the lights, the City will restrict the passage of private vehicles through the Alameda Principal during Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays , holidays and vespers between 18 and 22 hours. As it happened yesterday, since the cars were diverted by Córdoba Street and Alameda de Colón.

Antequera : Correr La Vega : 13/04/17

When : 13/04/17 to 14/04/17

Where : Antequera, Málaga, Spain

What : Correr la Vega

The Malaga city of Antequera, located at the main crossroads of Andalusia and known as “the heart” of the autonomous community, has been and is a must for travelers and travelers of all time. Its magnificent monumental complex is the result of its historical past, and is reflected in more than fifty buildings of religious and civil architecture dating from the Bronze Age to the 18th century.

One of the elements that identifies its Holy Week is the “Correr la Vega”, a long-awaited tradition both for its inhabitants and for the numerous tourists that are approaching at that time to the town and whose origin, apparently, is due to an ancient Tradition that was to take the images to the highest point of the city to bless the lands of La Vega de Antequera.

On Thursdays and Fridays, at the end of the procession, the “brothers” of the cofradías who process those days, with the exception of La Soledad, take the thrones marching to the beginning of a slope or hill and, with The bell warning, start a very emotional race carrying the thrones to where the fields of la Vega are to be seen, so they can be blessed.
