Malaga’s Christmas lights 2018


It feels like yesterday when we were celebrating the start of 2018 and now we are in the middle of December, and Christmas can now be felt in the air.

As you know at Hotel Florida Spa we are massive fans of Christmas as everybody is much more cheerful and towns and cities are busier and they look beautiful with lovely Christmas lights.

Malaga is in fact one of the most popular cities in Spain for its beauty during Christmas, as its city centre, and especially Calle Larios, look absolutely amazing this time of year.

The Christmas lights in Calle Larios are always fantastic, and their design is stunning as it is inspired in cathedrals. 

Malaga’s Christmas lighting opening ceremony 2018 was on Friday the 30th of November, since then until the 6th of January, the beautiful lights will be on daily from 6:30 P.M. till 2:00 A.M.

As in previous years, there will be a music and light shows, though this year instead of twice it will be 3 times a day (at 6:30 P.M, 8:00 P.M and 9:30 P.M).

The music themes chosen this time are “Rondo veneziano-Zodiaco”, ’Rondo veneziano-Música fantasía’, ’Villancico altozano’ by Café Quijano and “Cosas de la Navidad” by Raúl Charlo.

If you have the fortune of staying at Hotel Florida Spa this Christmas, we certainly recommend you not to miss a visit to Malaga city centre.

Because Christmas in Costa del Sol is simply magic!

Weekend plans: Flamenco show


Last week here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa we recommended you visit, as a weekend plan, some of the craft markets we then had in Costa del Sol.

Today we would like to suggest another great plan for this Saturday. This time it is a flamenco show called “Aleo” which will take place at 2:00 P.M. in the MIMMA (Malaga’s Interactive Music Museum).

The Music Museum is in Malaga city centre, in calle Beatas, in the old mansion that belonged to the Count of Las Navas. This construction was built around 1770 and restored in 2010.

“Aleo” is an outstanding 45-minute-long dancing and singing flamenco show.

Tickets can be bought online by clicking here and the price is 15€ or 25€ depending on if you would also like to have lunch at restaurante “Clandestino”.

We hope you enjoy this great show if you decide to follow this week’s recommendation!
