Seven municipalities are competing in the ninth edition of the company’s Juntos brillamos mas (We shine brighter together) initiative.

All are hoping to win the first prize of Christmas lights provided by Ferrero Rocher.

Ainsa (Huesca), Cazalla de la Sierra (Sevilla), Chinchon (Community of Madrid), Portomarin (Lugo), Santillana del Mar (Cantabria) and Siguenza (Guadalajar) are Mojacar’s rivals in the race to secure Ferrero Rocher’s sponsorship.

All were chosen on the strength of their charm, cultural richness, gastronomy, and hospitable characteristics.

Members of the public can vote for their choice on the website until November 30 website.  The names of the three ultimate finalists will be announced on December, with voting continuing until December 11 and the winner revealed on December 12.
