Christmas in Fuengirola

04joulu

A few days ago, on the Facebook page of Hotel Yaramar, your hotel in Fuengirola, we shared with you a beautiful video about the great light and music show that can be seen daily till the 6th of January in Plaza de España, in Fuengirola town centre.

There are 5 shows each day (7:00 P.M, 7:30 P.M, 8:00 P.M., 8:30 P.M. and 9:00 P.M), and one extra show at 9:30 P.M. on weekends and bank holidays.

In Fuengirola during Christmas, besides this beautiful Christmas show there are many more things to do and see.

In Plaza de la Constitución, in Fuengirola town centre, there is a charming Christmas Market with wooden huts until the 17th of December.

Plaza de los Reyes Católicos is housing Fuengirola’s official Nativity scene, though this is not the only one in town. In the headquarters of Hermandad Jesus Cautivo in Avenida Jesus Cautivo, in Los Boliches by the fairground, there is another fantastic Nativity scene that can get visited until the 6th of January on Tuesdays, Sundays and bank holidays from 11:00 to 1:30 P.M. and the rest of days from 5:00 to 8:30 P.M.

In Los Boliches there is another Nativity scene made of cold porcelain that can be visited on the first floor of Edificio Los Colores until the 6th of January.

From Friday the 8th of December the Nativity Scene of Hermandad Cristo Yacente (in Calle Camilo Jose Cela, by Bioparc Fuengirola) can also get visited from 11:30A.M. to 1:30 P.M. and from 6:00 P.M. to 8:30 P.M.

And if music is more your sort of thing, we recommend you not to miss the fabulous free concert by Fuengirola’s Official Band and some Finnish musicians at 8:00 P.M. in Palacio de la Paz ( in the fairground) to celebrate the independence of Finland and Spanish Constitution Day.

In fewer words, in Fuengirola there are loads of things to do during the holidays, so if you are currently staying with us at Hotel Yaramar and you fancy experiencing how we live Christmas in Spain we recommend you not to miss the great leisure offer that Fuengirola has available for you this Christmas.
