Nativity Scenes in Fuengirola


Christmas is finally here, and because of this today on the blog of Hotel Yaramar, your hotel in Fuengirola, we have a very special and Christmassy recommendation.

For the second year in a row the Fuengirola Council has organised an adorable exhibition that includes Nativity scenes made by children from 12 local schools using recycled materials.

The exhibition called “My School Nativity Scene 2“is free to visit from Tuesday to Sunday till the 13th of January, and it is on display in Museo Ciudad de Fuengirola.

In Museo Ciudad de Fuengirola, besides seeing the fun nativity scenes created by children, you will also be able to enjoy a small exhibition that contains different nativity scenes owned by doctor Jose Manuel Garcia Verdugo.

If you are a big fan of Nativity scenes, once you visit Museo Ciudad de Fuengirola, we recommend you go to Plaza de Los Reyes Catolicos, as this is where Fuengirola’s official Nativity Scene is placed for the third year in a row.

Fuengirola’s official nativity scene is in the middle of the square inside a big glass box, so it can be visited any day at any time.

We hope you enjoy Christmas in Fuengirola!

More Christmas fun in Fuengirola


There is no need to say that in Hotel Yaramar we all love Christmas as it is quite obvious that this is one of our favourite times of the year.

If you have decided to spend the festive season with us, apart from enjoying the amazing Christmas and New Year’s Eve Gala dinners and our Boxing Day celebration, you can also have some more Christmas fun in Fuengirola thanks to the fantastic Christmas program the Town Council has organised this year.

To begin with, today, Monday the 18th of December at 7:30 P.M. in Palacio de la Paz ( the Fairground auditorium), there is a beautiful free of charge Christmas concert by the students of the Conservatory.  

In the same place, on Friday the 22nd of December, at 8:30 P.M. there will be another great and free Christmas concert, this time by the official local band.

If Nativity scenes are what you really like and you have already seen the ones we recommended here a pair of weeks ago, you might find interesting that from Friday, the 15th of December, there is an endearing exhibition about nativity scenes in Museo Ciudad de Fuengirola ( near the Town Hall and Bioparc Fuengirola). The nativity scenes there have been made by children from local schools using recycled materials like egg shells, cork and plastic tops or cardboard boxes.

These cute nativities can be visited for free during the festive period from Tuesday to Sunday from 5:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. as the museum is closed on Monday, as well as on the 24th and 31st of December.

Enjoy Christmas in Fuengirola!

Christmas in Fuengirola


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.
