THIS holiday season, Cartagena is pulling out all the stops to create a magical atmosphere for residents and visitors. The city’s iconic LED almond tree lights, known for their spectacular display on Calle del Carmen, will be duplicated in several prominent locations, including Puertas de Murcia, Santa Florentina, Jabonerías, and Plaza San Sebastián. These lights will be adorned with decorative elements in gold and hues of violet and pink, ensuring they remain eye-catching even in daylight.

The festive display is set to operate from December 1 to January 7, with Cartagena allocating more than half a million euros to fund this project. The esteemed firm Elecfes has been chosen as the service provider, with their proposal valued at €588,665, including decorative lighting across various areas of the city, from the historic centre to the outskirts. Adding to the spectacle are the plans for a cascading light curtain at the Nautical Station monument, along with a range of themed designs and decorations throughout the city.
