  • Noche en Blanco returned last weekend with an array of events and activities

The streets of Malaga were transformed last Saturday night for the twelfth edition of Noche en Blanco.

The evening saw thousands of people take to the streets of Malaga to benefit from free access to many of the city's cultural hotspots (including the Centre Pompidou, the Museo Picasso and Museo Carmen Thyssen), attending events such as David Sotero's concert in Plaza de la Constitución, light shows in Plaza de la Marina, guided visits of the San Miguel and English cemeteries, and the viewing of the documentary 'Circo del Sol' at the Ateneo.

Calle Larios, which was adorned with 'cities in the air', became a hub of activity as many shops also stayed open later than usual.

The night also saw the reopening of Museum of Malaga's entrance along Calle Alcazabilla, allowing visitors to explore the archaeology section.

Despite the evening's attendance being lower than usual, the queues were still long with the line for the Carmen Thyssen Museum stretching around the corner.
