Sweet, bright Christmas is in the air
Everything is magic during Christmas holidays. Places change their faces under colored lights. Streets are filled with typical aromas. Squares become beautiful open-air nativity scenes and shopping turns into something completely different.
Marbella has a wonderful atmosphere, so if you are planning an Andalusian Christmas time, here you'll have a very exciting experience, perfect if shared with all family.
An interesting Christmas program is on, suitable for all ages. Events include concerts, contests and even a visit from the three wise men on January 4 and 5 who hold a Three Kings parade throwing sweets for all the kids.
If you like Christmas markets, go to Palacio de Ferias y Congresos. Every day, until 23:00 you'll enjoy traditiona stalls and children's attractions. And a big ice skating rink that is a Christamas must!
On December 23rd you will attend to the Old Town Neighborhood Day: business and shop owners of Old Town Marbella present gifts to passersby with a promotion and free tasting of their holiday products. And at 17:00 don't miss the traditional Chocolatada at Plaza de la Victoria, where chocolate and typical churros are served.
As usual in Spain, Christmas celebration will end with Three Kings reception and parade. On January 5th at 12:30 the Three Kings will arrive in Marbella by boat at the Puerto Deportivo de Marbella (Sports port) and then pass through the city ending at the Town Hall on Plaza de los Naranjos. A stroll through city lights and decorations that is really worth to be seen.
Enjoy your Spanish Christmas!
