Fair of Malaga 2019

12Aug

It is mid-August and this time of year is when the city of Malaga celebrates its fair.

This year the Fair of Malaga will start on Thursday the 15th of August, which is also a national bank holiday, and it will be on until Saturday the 24th.

Although the dates can vary a bit the fair is always on in mid-August as it commemorates the reconquest of Malaga by the Catholic Monarchs on the 19th of August 1487.

The Fair of Malaga is one of the most awaited events of the year not only by locals but also by visitors.

This amazing festival still has a traditional side even if it is quite cosmopolitan and international due to the big number of visitors from all over the world who visit the city willing to enjoy it.

If at the moment you are on holiday at Hotel Yaramar, your hotel in Fuengirola, we certainly recommend you to visit this fantastic fair which is held from the morning to the early evening in the historical centre of Malaga, around the beautiful and well known Calle Larios.

There you will have the opportunity to see stunning flamenco dresses, to watch people dancing the traditional sevillanas and to enjoy some fantastic music performances. Besides, you can also try some delicious tapas and amazing local wines in a cheerful and happy environment.

As you know getting to Malaga from our hotel is cheap and easy thanks to the train service that connects Fuengirola with Malaga cityEnjoy the fair!

The Fair of Los Boliches 2019 and the Day of Virgen del Carmen

15Jul

If you have had the fortune of having stayed with us before this time of year you might already know that these last few and upcoming days are very important in Los Boliches.

From Friday the 12th to Tuesday 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 visit the fairground as the fair is held there.

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

Although this is celebrated by all locals in Los Boliches it is lived in a different and a more intense way.

Tomorrow in fact at 12:00 P.M. there will be a mass in honour of the Virgin in the Church of Los Boliches. 

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 starts at 8:45 P.M. 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 tomorrow evening you are staying at Hotel Yaramar we definitely recommend you not to miss this celebration from your balcony or from our Blue Sea, our pool bar.

Try not to miss one of the most awaited events of the year in Fuengirola!
