Romeria of Fuengirola 2019

23Sep

Last week here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa we informed you that the fair of Fuengirola was coming soon, so today we have the pleasure to recommend you not to miss the first of the many fair related events that will take place in our town: The Romeria of Virgen del Rosario.

The Romeria of Fuengirola is always on the Sunday before the start of the fair, so if you have the fortune of being on holiday with us right now try not to miss it as you will get to experience what a traditional Spanish “romeria” is.

This great event will be held on Sunday the 29th of September. It will start at around 9:30 A.M with a beautiful mass in the Virgen del Rosario Church, located in Plaza de la Constitución right in the town centre.

Once the mass is over, beautiful horses and carriages will join the Virgin of Rosario in a procession that will take her from Fuengirola town centre to Parque del Esparragal in Mijas Costa.

There is no better way to get ready for the fair than attending this very special mass, so if you have no plans for Sunday do not forget to note down this cool one on your diary.

We are sure you will really enjoy it!

It is mid-August and this time of year is when the city of Malaga celebrates its fair.

This year the Fair of Malaga will start on Thursday the 15th of August, which is also a national bank holiday, and it will be on until Saturday the 24th.

Although the dates can vary a bit the fair is always on in mid-August as it commemorates the reconquest of Malaga by the Catholic Monarchs on the 19th of August 1487.

The Fair of Malaga is one of the most awaited events of the year not only by locals but also by visitors.

This amazing festival still has a traditional side even if it is quite cosmopolitan and international due to the big number of visitors from all over the world who visit the city willing to enjoy it.

If at the moment you are on holiday at Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, we certainly recommend you to visit this fantastic fair which is held from the morning to the early evening in the historical centre of Malaga, around the beautiful and well known Calle Larios.

There you will have the opportunity to see stunning flamenco dresses, to watch people dancing the traditional sevillanas and to enjoy some fantastic music performances. Besides, you can also try some delicious tapas and amazing local wines in a cheerful and happy environment. 

As you know getting to Malaga from our hotel is cheap and easy thanks to the train service that connects Fuengirola with Malaga cityEnjoy the fair!
