It is mid August and this time of year is when the capital of Costa del Sol hosts its fair.
This 2015 the Fair of Malaga started last Saturday the 15th of August and will finish on Saturday the 22nd.
Although the dates can vary a bit this is always celebrated in mid August as it commemorates the reconquest of Malaga by the Catholic Monarchs on the 19th of August 1487.
This was celebrated for the first time in 1491 and since then it has evolved lots becoming the fair we now know: one the most awaited events of the year not only by locals but also by visitors and tourists.
Nowadays this amazing festival still has a traditional side even if it is quite cosmopolitan and international due to the big amount of visitors from all over the world who come to the city willing to experience it.
If right now you are on holiday at Hotel Yaramar, your hotel in Fuengirola, we certainly recommend you to visit this fantastic fair 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 beautiful flamenco dresses, traditional Andalusian dancing and some fantastic music performances and to try some delicious tapas and amazing local wines in a wonderful and happy atmosphere.
As you know getting to Malaga from our hotel is cheap and easy thanks to the fantastic train service that connects Fuengirola with Malaga city… Try not to miss it, it is well worth it!
