Museo Ciudad de Fuengirola

Nativity Scenes in Fuengirola


This week on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, we bring you a very special and Christmassy recommendation.

For the second year in a row the Fuengirola Council has organised an adorable exhibition that includes Nativity scenes made by children from 12 local schools using recycled materials.

The exhibition called “My School Nativity Scene 2“is free to visit from Tuesday to Sunday till the 13th of January, and it is on display in Museo Ciudad de Fuengirola.

In Museo Ciudad de Fuengirola, besides seeing the fun nativity scenes created by children, you will also be able to enjoy a small exhibition that contains different nativity scenes owned by doctor Jose Manuel Garcia Verdugo.

If you are a big fan of Nativity scenes, once you visit Museo Ciudad de Fuengirola, we recommend you go to Plaza de Los Reyes Catolicos, as this is where Fuengirola’s official Nativity Scene is placed for the third year in a row.

Fuengirola’s official nativity scene is in the middle of the square inside a big glass box, so it can be visited any day at any time.

We hope you enjoy Christmas in Fuengirola!

Exhibition in Fuengirola about football legend “Juanito”


If you are currently staying at Hotel Florida Spa and you are a big football fan, we would like to recommend you the free exhibition that right now and till this Sunday, the 4th of June, is housed in Museo Ciudad de Fuengirola.

The exhibition is about football legend Juanito, a very famous footballer from Fuengirola during the 70s and 80s as he played for Real Madrid for more than 10 seasons. He became a real star and won the respect and support of the Real Madrid supporters.

After playing for Real Madrid, he came back to his hometown and played for Malaga FC for 2 seasons. He finally retired in 1989, only 3 years before his tragic death in a car accident in 1992.

This year, as it is the 25th anniversary of his death, the City Council has organised a series of events and activities in his honour, and this great exhibition is one of them.

Football fans will definitely love this exhibition as many objects related or belonging to Juanito, like trophies, kits or pictures, are on display there. These amazing objects are not only part of the history of Fuengirola, but also part of the history of Real Madrid.

Our local museum is very close to Bioparc Fuengirola and it is open for visits from Tuesday to Friday from 5:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. and on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. and from 5:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M.

If you are on holiday at Hotel Florida Spa and football is your passion do not miss it! We are sure you will love it!
