The 12th of October is Spain’s national day as we commemorate the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus.

Therefore, this Thursday is a national holiday all over Spain and it is also the day when the traditional military parade takes place in Madrid. This parade is very important and it is attended by the King, the Royal Family and other members of the government.

The 12th of October is known as “Hispanity Day” though it is also known as “Pilar Day” as it is also the day of Virgen del Pilar, patron saint of Aragon (a region in the North of Spain).

The 12th of October is also the last day of the fair of Fuengirola, so if you have the pleasure of being on holiday at Hotel Yaramar, your hotel in Fuengirola, we recommend you visit the fair for the last time this year

Happy Hispanity day and happy end of fair!!
