Is any city at the Costa del Sol, or Spain for that matter, so nice to visit over Christmas as Malaga?
Tourists who come from the north of Europe often find Christmas in Spain… well, not Christmassy. It lacks the cold and snow that create the right atmosphere. Not so Malaga!
Malaga is actually becoming famous for its brilliant Christmas atmosphere.

For in December, Malaga looks like one big Christmas tree!
The beautiful lights turn the city centre into a fairy tale.
Head for the famous shopping street Calle Larios, or straight to the Christmas market.
The market is located in the park in the centre, just behind the port.
It takes place from 11 AM to 10 PM, every day until January 5th and is the place to be to find arts and crafts, interesting and fun gifts as well as sweet treats.
Elsewhere in the province of Malaga, also the Christmas market of Benalmadena is definitely worth a visit.
This market takes place in the Av. Antonio Machado, also until January 5th.
Mediterranean, in the most southern tip of Europe… and still a real Christmas feel. You will not regret it.
Dear reader, let us grab this opportunity to wish you a very nice December and a very Merry Christmas!
