Micro exhibitions about women at CAC Mijas


About a month ago here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa we recommended you visit CAC Malaga … but did you know that there is another Contemporary Art Centre in Mijas Pueblo?

CAC Mijas opened about 4 years ago an it has become a very popular museum in little time as it has exhibited pieces of art of international artists as important as Pablo Picasso.

On the 8th of March, due to International Women’s Day, CAC Mijas opened a new triple exhibition about women. 

The first of them is called “WOMAN – Inspiration facing the mirror” by Lol Malone.

The second micro exhibition is by Asuncion Retamero and it is a collection of haute couture dresses called “Light of a Woman”.

The third one is called “Women’s fight” and it contains 12 pieces and it is by artist Juan Jesús Díaz Ariza.

All of them can be visited until Wednesday the 30th of May. The regular entry price to access all facilities of the museum is 3 euros, and the price for groups and over 65s is only 2 euros.

CAC Mijas is in the centre of Mijas Pueblo, in calle Malaga, and it is open Monday to Saturday from 10 P.M to 6 P.M.

If you love art, Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, recommends you not to miss the opportunity of visiting this great museum!

Christmas in Costa del Sol


Last week here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, we told you about Christmas in Fuengirola and the vast amount of activities that our Council has organised this year to celebrate it.

This week we continue with the same topic as not only in Fuengirola there is lots to see and do during Christmas. In other resorts in Costa del Sol, like Mijas and Torremolinos, there is lots of special events programmed for December and January, so if you are planning to spend Christmas with us in Costa del Sol, you will possibly find the information we are about to share quite interesting. 

On Tuesday the 12th of December there is a Christmas Concert in La Cala de Mijas. You might already know La Cala as it is on the way to Marbella, and it is quite easy to get there by bus.

Besides this concert, from Friday the 15th of December till Saturday the 6thof January there will be Christmas markets both in La Cala and in Mijas Pueblo.

On the other hand in Torremolinos, in Plaza Costa del Sol, there is a 12 metre tall Christmas tree, also a Santa’s grotto and a traditional Christmas market with crafts, food and Christmas decorations, among many other things.   

Well, if you love Christmas as much as we do and you are currently here, you will easily fall into the amazing Christmas spirit that can currently be felt in Costa del Sol.

Happy holidays!

Mijas Milenaria exhibition


Just a pair of weeks ago, here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa, we recommended you to visit Mijas, not only because it is a beautiful whitewashed village but also because every summer there is a great tapas route there.

Today we would like to recommend you to visit our neighbouring town again as right now and until the 3rd of September the Casa Museo museum houses a great exhibition called “Mijas Milenaria” (“Millenary Mijas”).

This exhibition shows a very important part of the history of the town as it contains a wide variety of objects from different civilisations from prehistoric to modern times.

One of the most important objects on display is a book temporarily lent by the Malaga Historical Archives that contains very interesting information about our region like the arrival of the Catholic Monarchs to Malaga after the Reconquest.

As you know getting to Mijas from Fuengirola is quite easy and cheap thanks to the M-122 bus line that links Fuengirola central station with Mijas Pueblo.

If you have a passion for history and archeology and you are currenly staying at Hotel Florida Spa, we recommend you not to miss this great exhibit.

Enjoy the beauty of Mijas and its fabulous museums!
