El Nicio Castle

Visited on the 06 Jan 2019

Although the place was already occupied at the beginning of the s. IX, the generalized outbreak of the rebellion of Umar Ibn Hafsun against the Cordovan power supposes the meeting in Munt Nis of an important population and the consequent construction of the castle, that is consolidated during second half of s. IX. In the year 923 it is conquered by the Cordovan troops and continues in use during the Caliphate and Taifa kingdoms, falling into decay shortly after.

In the upper part of the El Padrón area and about 7 kilometers from Estepona are the ruins of the foundations of Castillo del Nicio. It is about the ruins of a ninth century fortress, of which the walls and several towers are preserved. They played a very important role during the rebellion of Omar Ben Hafsun against the Cordovan emirs, being finally conquered by the emilar troops the year 923.

Its layout is almost rectangular, adapted to the variations of the terrain, and has all the characteristics of having been raised during the Caliphate period. Its towers and masonry walls have disappeared in some places and what remains of them does not raise more than 4 meters from the ground. They are in a progressive state of ruin.

Like last year, the central street will host two shows every day: at 6:30 p.m. and at 9:30 p.m. and it will last about eight minutes, since the three songs will be played in a row. As could be seen in the premiere, for this year more Christmas songs have been chosen and the lights shine at a somewhat slower pace than the previous year.

Until next January 6, when Their Majesties the Magi of the East leave all their bags full of gifts in the houses of the people of Malaga, about two million points of light will illuminate the streets of the capital. All the bulbs are low consumption and have involved an investment of 573,211 euros in the emblematic areas of the city. On this occasion, Calle Larios, has been decorated with a vault with about 2,630 microled cords, two domes and 18 porticos with windows, stained-glass windows and cathedral-style rosettes that have been made looking as close as possible to that of Malaga.

Christmas will light up this year in Malaga for 44 days and to avoid traffic incidents as a result of the high number of people who come to see the lights, the City will restrict the passage of private vehicles through the Alameda Principal during Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays , holidays and vespers between 18 and 22 hours. As it happened yesterday, since the cars were diverted by Córdoba Street and Alameda de Colón.
