Fair of Los Boliches

The Fair of Los Boliches 2019 and the Day of Virgen del Carmen

15heinä

If you have had the fortune of having stayed with us before this time of year you might already know that these last few and upcoming days are very important in Los Boliches.

From Friday the 12th to Tuesday the 16th of July the Fair of Los Boliches is on, so if right now you are on holiday at Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, we recommend you visit the fairground as the fair is held there.  

Tomorrow, Tuesday the 16th of July is in fact the most important day of this event as it is the day of Virgen del Carmen, the patron saint of Los Boliches.

Although this is celebrated by all locals in Los Boliches it is lived in a different and a more intense way.

Tomorrow in fact at 12:00 P.M. there will be a mass in honour of the Virgin in the Church of Los Boliches. 

Being a man of the sea is a very hard and risky job, so due to the protection they believe the virgin gives them every 16th of July many of them take her out in procession as a way to express their gratitude. 

This procession starts at 8:45 P.M. is considered by many as the most unique and special of the year so if right now you are on holiday at Hotel Florida Spa we recommend you to go to Los Boliches tomorrow evening to see this beautiful procession that ends with the Virgin in the sea surrounded by small boats and fireworks.

Enjoy one of the most awaited events of the year in Fuengirola!

Virgen del Carmen celebrations in Los Boliches

10heinä

If you have stayed here before this time of year you might already know that this week is very important in Fuengirola and in the beautiful area of Los Boliches.

From Wednesday the 12th to Sunday the 16th of July is the Fair of Los Boliches, so if right now you are here having a great holiday at Hotel Florida Spa, we recommend you to visit the fairground  as the fair is held there.

Sunday the 16th of July in fact is one of the most important days of the year in Los Boliches as it is the day of Virgen del Carmen.

Although this is celebrated everywhere in Fuengirola in Los Boliches it is lived in a more intense way as this Virgin is the patron saint of this charming fishermen’s quarter.

Being a man of the sea is a very hard and risky job, so due to the protection they believe the Virgin gives them every 16th of July many of them take her out in procession as a way to express their gratitude.

If you are free this Sunday evening we recommend you not to miss this beautiful procession where the Virgin ends up in the sea surrounded by boats and fireworks.

You possibly have never experienced something so magic!
