Trips to see the most beautiful Christmas lights

A getaway in December has to have a Christmas touch. And what could be more appropriate than enjoying the Christmas lights? Is the perfect plan, especially if you travel with children. Destinations like New York or Paris are always good options, but today we bring three alternatives for those who prefer to stay in Spain.

We started our little tour in Malaga. Every year, it dresses in light and color to show us that it is much more than a beach destination. In fact, it has been selected by the European Best Destinations association as one of the 21 cities with the most beautiful Christmas lights in Europe.

Its decoration is always highly innovative and, every year, its exceptional show attracts visitors from all over the world. Its shopping streets and its Christmas markets become a unique setting for Christmas shopping.

Madrid is the most classic national destination for these dates And, as it could not be less, it has also been included in the list of European Best Destinations. Not only for its spectacular lighting, but also for their Christmas markets.

For some years now, the capital’s Christmas decorations have featured proposals from prestigious artists, such as the designer Andrés Sardá or the architect Sergio Sebastián. To this are added the traditional figurative nativity scenes, which have been placed in emblematic places such as the Puerta de Alcalá or the entrances to the Plaza Mayor.

Surely when talking about Christmas lights the first place that has come to mind has been Vigo. That is why, although it is not in the European Best Destinations selection, we had to include it in our list.

A very comfortable way to enjoy your lighting is getting on the Christmas Train, who walks the streets of the city every day after dark. In addition, the show of lights and colors is joined by music, since the display includes a public address system through which Christmas carols are heard. There is nothing missing!
