Flamenco Shows in Mijas

17Sep

Last week, here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, we recommended you attend the fantastic sevillanas dancing classes that the Fuengirola Council has organised this month as a warm up for the upcoming fair.

Today, our recommendation is also about dancing as every week, both on Wednesdays and Saturdays at midday there is a free flamenco show in Mijas Pueblo.

On Wednesday the show is in Plaza Virgen de la Peña and on Saturday it is in Plaza de la Constitución.

As it is outdoors, the shows are on weather permitting, but as in Costa del Sol we have a good weather most of the times, they rarely get cancelled.

Due to the great location of Hotel Florida Spa, getting from our hotel to Mijas Pueblo is very easy and quick, as the bus to Mijas is taken in Fuengirola bus station, which is only 5 minutes away walking from us.

If you would like to watch this superb free show and visit one of the most beautiful whitewashed villages in Andalusia, Wednesdays and Saturdays are the perfect days to do it!

Enjoy flamenco in Mijas Pueblo!

Fair of Mijas 2018

03Sep

Just two weeks ago here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa we recommended you go to Mijas to enjoy its fantastic Contemporary Art Museum.  

Today, however, we would like you to go to Mijas for a very different reason as this week its fair is on.

This fair, in honour of the patron of Mijas, Virgen de la Peña, is celebrated every year in early September.

The Fair of Mijas 2018 will start on Wednesday, the 5th of September, and will be on until Sunday the 9th of September.

Out of all these days the 8th of September is the most important one as it is the day of Virgen de la Peña and because of this the Virgin is taken out in a beautiful procession in the evening.

This, in fact, is one of the most beautiful religious acts in Costa del Sol, so it is worth seeing.

As you might already know getting to Mijas from Fuengirola is quite easy thanks to the fantastic bus service that connects both towns.

Buses to Mijas depart every 25 minutes from Fuengirola bus station and during the fair they tend to be operative for longer than normal to make sure lots of people can enjoy the fantastic fair.

We hope you follow our recommendation and have lots of fun in Mijas!
