Madrid’s Mayor Switches on Christmas Lights

Plaza_mayor_lights_2 A couple of days ago the Mayor of Madrid, Alberto Ruiz Gallardón, switched on the Christmas lights around the centre of MAdrid, starting with the Plaza de Colón, then c/ Alcalá and Mayor, before finishing in the Plaza Mayor. This year a number of artists have been invited to come up with their own designs for the different barrios of Madrid, which has resulted in 80 streets and squares being lit up with over 2 million lightbulbs! The lights will continue until 6th January.
