MADRID CELEBRATES THE CITY’S FIRST WORLD HERITAGE SITE WITH LUZMADRID FESTIVAL
With the Landscape of Light having recently been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Madrid is now marking the occasion with the LuzMadrid festival, the International Festival of Light. The creative experience will involve over twenty works from national and international artists and will take place from 8pm-12pm on the 29 to 31 October 2021. The works will make the city shine brilliantly projecting videos onto buildings and featuring incredible light installations. The festival is free to visit.
The emblematic buildings that will be transformed with a myriad of light features include El Retiro Park, Puerta de Alcalá, Prado Museum, Cibeles Palace among others. There is a tour available to ensure visitors do not miss any of the beautiful sculptures on show, however the sites are also available to visit as tourists please.
There are many famous names from both Spain and the rest of the world that are creating fabulous works for this year’s event including designers such as Onionlab, Maxi Gilbert, Antoni Arola, and Erik Barray as well as Javier Riera, Juanjo Llorens and Alicia Moneva among many others. The LuzMadrid festival will celebrate the Spanish capital in spectacular fashion and reinforce why its Landscape of Light was recently the city’s first inscription into the prestigious list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
