ALMERIA council has revealed there will be a Christmas crowning glory at the end of what has been a magical year for the city.
This year Almeria has been making the utmost of its status as national gastronomy capital, and the three 10-metre high crown installations made up of 155,000 lights, plus Christmassy music show, are seen as fitting Festive Season decorations.
The giant crowns will stand on the Mirador de la Rambla from December 5 to January 6.
City Promotion councillor Carlos Sanchez said the elaborate decorations were a way for the council to thank all the city’s residents for their commitment to the gastronomy 2019 initiative, commenting, “I am sure they will be enjoyed as much be adults as children.”
The councillor also stressed the aim was to continue to promote the city as a foodie destination, and said that Christmas would mark the transition for the use of the new ‘Almeria, Gastronomy City’ logo from the beginning of 2020 onwards.
