Exhibition about cubism in Museo Carmen Thyssen

30Oct

A pair of weeks go here on the blog of Hotel Angela we recommended you visit Casa de la Cultura of Fuengirola to see the exhibition about the posters of the fair that back then was there on display.

Today we would like to suggest you visit another great exhibition, though this time in the capital of Costa del Sol.

From the 18th of October 2017 till the 25th of February 2018 Museo Carmen Thyssen holds an interesting exhibition called “Juan Gris, María Blanchard and cubism (1916-1927)”.

As we pointed out in previous posts when we mentioned this museum, Museo Carmen Thyssen is based in a beautiful old building right in the heart of Malaga. It opens Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 A.M to 8:00 P.M and its entry price depends on if you only want to see the temporary exhibition or both, temporary and permanent. What is constant is the fact every Sunday from 5:00 P.M its entry is free.   

The exhibition we mentioned above, called Juan Gris, María Blanchard y los cubismos is a temporary one that shows the most fascinating moments in 20th century art through the works of Juan Gris, María Blanchard and other artists with whom they both shared friendship and creative empathy.

If you really like modern art and you are planning to come on holiday to Hotel Angela sometime soon we recommend you go to Malaga and visit this exhibition.

Roasted chestnuts

23Oct

Autumn seems to be here now and the temperatures in Costa del Sol have started to descend a bit. When autumn arrives roasted chestnuts also do so. They are a traditional and hot snack typical from autumn that can be bought in the streets, in any of the many kiosks that this time of year are settled in our towns.

Their smell is something very typical in Spain from October till the end of the festive season.

Chestnut sellers have set up their kiosks in our neighbourhoods filling the air with that particular smell which is so inviting that when the dark comes we all feel temped to buy a cone of hot chestnuts.

Roasting them is not as easy as it seems, it is a skill that in families of sellers passes from parents to children.

A pair of pots with holes are put over a fire. Then scored chestnuts are put on the pot and some salt is added. From time to time the chestnut seller moves the pot to ensure an even roast. Once they are roasted they are put on a big tray and sold in cones.

In Spain eating them is not only a tradition but also a tasty pleasure… Is this done in your towns too or you had never heard about this great snack?

If you are staying with us in Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, and you want to taste them go and buy some in one of the kiosks in Los Boliches. Not only they are warm and lovely, they are delicious too!
