This fair of Fuengirola is one of the most important in Costa del Sol, it is hold in the fairground which has more than 32 “casetas” open to all visitors and it lasts till the 12th of October.
When we think about the fair, we can’t imagine it without the sound of “sevillanas” playing in the background and without people enjoying while dancing; this is why we have wanted to dedicate this post to this typical dancing and singing heard and danced in all fairs and festivals in Andalusia.
Its origin is set around the Catholic Kings times and nowadays it is the most danced regional dance in Spain and abroad.
Sevillanas are divided in 4 parts and they tend to be danced in pairs. Their lyrics can talk about many different topics like everyday life or important religious and love events among many other things.
As you well know here in Hotel Florida Spa we love to share our culture and customs with you, so during our festive week we have decided to organise some classes related to the fair. We really hope you are eager to participate! The experience will help you to understand and live the fair and we promise you that you will have lots of fun. Pay attention to our Facebook page as we will inform you there about what we have on hold for you. Do not miss it, come and enjoy with us!
