The Fair of Los Boliches 2017 and the Day of Virgen del Carmen

10Jul

If you have had the fortune of having stayed with us before this time of year you might already know that this week is very important in Los Boliches.

From Wednesday the 12th to Sunday the 16th of July the Fair of Los Boliches is on, so if right now you are on holiday at Hotel Yaramar, your hotel in Fuengirola, we recommend you to visit the fairground as the fair takes place there.

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

Although this is celebrated everwhere in Fuengirola in our neighbourhood, Los Boliches, it is lived in a different and a more intense way.

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 is considered by many as the most unique and special of the year as it ends with the Virgin in the sea surrounded by small boats and fireworks.

If this Sunday evening you are staying at Hotel Yaramar we definitely recommend you not to miss this celebration from your balcony or from our pool area.

We hope you enjoy one of the most awaited events of the year in Fuengirola!
