"Every Five for Festive Lights: Metro Trains on a Rapid Roll to Malaga's Yuletide Glow"

Starting this Friday, when Malaga's festive lights burst into life, the pulse of the city's metro services will quicken. From 5.30pm to 11pm, the heart of the city will pulse with trains arriving every five and a half minutes.



The anticipation is building. November 24, circled in crimson in countless calendars, heralds the beginning of Christmas in Malaga. At 7pm, the city's authorities will unveil the seasonal splendour along the premier shopping avenue, Calle Larios, signalling the start of holiday festivities.

An impressive array of over 2.2 million LED lights will adorn 500 thoroughfares, plazas, and landmarks, turning the city into a luminescent wonderland. This spectacle is set to draw throngs to the city's core. In response, Metro de Málaga is ramping up its train schedule, promising a train every 5 minutes and 20 seconds from November 24th, as announced on their X social media platform.

This enhanced train schedule kicks off on the lighting ceremony day, offering more frequent connections between 5.30pm and 11pm, whisking people swiftly into the festive city center. This service will run until November 30th, though on Sunday, November 26th, trains will operate every 7 to 9 minutes and 30 seconds. On the inaugural evening, service frequency will tighten to every 7 minutes from 11pm to 1.30am, a significant boost from the usual 12-minute intervals.

Timetable Highlights:

This year's Calle Larios will host three daily light and sound extravaganzas, except on December 24 and 31, scheduled at 6.30pm, 8pm, and 10pm. Lights will twinkle till midnight Monday through Thursday, and until 2am from Friday to Sunday.

A highlight will be the south façade of the Cathedral's Mocha tower, graced with a video mapping show titled "Angel of Light." This fairy tale-inspired spectacle will blend dazzling imagery with immense stained-glass window replicas, utilizing cutting-edge laser projection technology. Organized by Firefly Events, these eight-minute shows will run daily at 6.45pm, 8pm, and 10pm, from December 1 to January 4, excluding December 24 and 31.
