Just two weeks ago here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa we recommended you go to Mijas to enjoy its fantastic Contemporary Art Museum.
Today, however, we would like you to go to Mijas for a very different reason as this week its fair is on.
This fair, in honour of the patron of Mijas, Virgen de la Peña, is celebrated every year in early September.
The Fair of Mijas 2018 will start on Wednesday, the 5th of September, and will be on until Sunday the 9th of September.
Out of all these days the 8th of September is the most important one as it is the day of Virgen de la Peña and because of this the Virgin is taken out in a beautiful procession in the evening.
This, in fact, is one of the most beautiful religious acts in Costa del Sol, so it is worth seeing.
As you might already know getting to Mijas from Fuengirola is quite easy thanks to the fantastic bus service that connects both towns.
Buses to Mijas depart every 25 minutes from Fuengirola bus station and during the fair they tend to be operative for longer than normal to make sure lots of people can enjoy the fantastic fair.
We hope you follow our recommendation and have lots of fun in Mijas!
