If you're looking to get into the Christmas spirit there's nothing better than a visit to Calle Larios in Málaga (the main shopping street in the city centre) to experience the switching on of the Christmas lights.
This year the spectacular light show will be switched on to the delight of the crowds that gather every year on Friday 30th November at 7pm.
A wonderful experience and a great excuse to do some Christmas shopping in the heart of this vibrant city, less than an hour from Real de La Quinta.
To get a taste, here's a video of last year's decorations!
