Exhibition about Toulouse-Lautrec in Museo Carmen Thyssen

09maalis

This week the blog of Hotel Florida Spa is all about art as we would like to recommend you a fantastic exhibition currently on in the capital of Costa del Sol.

From the 21st of February till the 9th of June Museo Carmen Thyssen holds an interesting exhibition called “Toulouse-Lautrec and the circus”.

As we pointed out in the past when we mentioned this museum, Museo Carmen Thyssen is based in a beautiful old building right in the heart of Malaga. It opens Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 A.M to 8:00 P.M and its entry price depends on if you only want to see the temporary exhibition or both, temporary and permanent. What is constant is the fact every Sunday from 5:00 P.M its entry is free.   

The exhibition we mentioned above, called “Toulouse-Lautrec” is a temporary one that offers its visitors the possibility to discover the fascinating drawings made by the artist using coloured pencils during a short period of convalescence in a sanatorium in Paris.

If you really like art and you are planning to stay with us shortly, we recommend you go to visit the Thyssen Museum to enjoy this superb exhibition.

Enjoy art in Costa del Sol!

02maalis

The weather here might be absolutely brilliant, but it is winter after all, so there is nothing better than having some lovely comfort food, and this is why Fuengirola organizes the popular food route called “La Cazuela de la Abuela” around this time of year.

This year in fact will be its 9th edition and many local bars and restaurants will participate in it. From Friday the 6th till Sunday the 22nd of March they all will offer a delicious casserole and a drink (glass of wine, beer, soft drink or water) for only 2,50€.

As in the past 8 years, the Rivera Beach Club, which belongs to our sister hotel Hotel Yaramar, will also participate this year with a tasty bean and seafood casserole that has tomato, peppers, garlic, beans, squid, mussels and langoustinesas main ingredients… It sounds lovely, right?

If you are currently on holiday in Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, and love Spanish food we certainly recommend you to try the new amazing casserole chef Salvador from the Rivera Beach Club has prepared for you all this year and to vote for it!

We also would like to wish Salvador best of luck and hope becomes a finalist as in some of the past editions!
