Iberdrola, through its Foundation, has signed an agreement with the Archidona City Council to replace and renew the lighting in the Plaza de Ochavada in Malaga.

The mayor of Archidona, Juan Manuel Almohalla, and the president of the Fundación Iberdrola España, Fernando García, signed the agreement this morning in an event that was also attended by the Councilor for Culture of the Archidona City Council, Pablo Garrido and the delegate institutional of Iberdrola in Andalusia, Antonio Fernández.

The initiative, which is part of Iberdrola’s Illuminations Program, will have an investment of 200,000 euros. The new artistic lighting will allow the architecture and its artistic elements to be highlighted.

Thanks to this agreement, the Fundación Iberdrola España will install the most advanced LED technology, which will reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions, as well as minimize maintenance work.

The Plaza was built in 1876, in the Baroque style, and it is one of the main performances of Andalusian Baroque urban planning. In the course of its history, Plaza Ochavada has gone through various activities linked to commerce and merchandise, being the setting for shows of a very varied nature. Currently, it is a meeting place, hosting multiple events related to the festive and cultural cycle of Archidona.

Iberdrola, with the promotion of art and culture

One of Iberdrola’s main areas of action, through its Foundation in Spain, focuses on the care, conservation, and enhancement of historical-artistic riches. The main objective of the Lighting Program is to develop interventions in unique buildings to install or improve their interior and/or exterior lighting systems to contribute to the enhancement of the historical-artistic heritage.

Since 2011, it has allocated more than three million euros. This investment has led to the improvement of more than 40 monuments in España. The works on the historic Roman Bridge of Alcántara, in Cáceres, stand out; the façade of the Supreme Court in Madrid, the Cathedral of Palencia, the Monastery of Guadalupe, the interior of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela or the Captaincy General of Seville.
