If you have visited us before around this time of year you might already know that this week is quite important in Fuengirola, and in our neighbourhood Los Boliches in particular.
From Wednesday the 15th to Sunday the 19th of July is the Fair of Los Boliches, so if right now you are having a fantastic holiday with us at Hotel Yaramar, we recommend you to go to the fairground to take a look as the fair will take place there.
Out of the whole week the 16th of July is the most important day as it not only because is a local holiday but also because it is the day of Virgen del Carmen, the patron of Los Boliches.
Although this is celebrated in the whole town in Los Boliches it is lived in a more intense way as this virgin is the saint of sailors and our area once was a traditional fishermen’s quarter.
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 say thank you.
This procession is considered by many as the most beautiful and unique of the year as it ends with the virgin in the sea surrounded by boats and fireworks.
If you have the fortune of being staying at Hotel Yaramar, your hotel in Fuengirola, this Thursday we invite you to enjoy this special moment in our solarium from 8:30 P.M. Enjoy with us one of the most beautiful events of the year in Costa del Sol!
