The Rock of Lovers

10helmi

Valentine’s Day is on Friday so this week and this blog entry are all about love.

Many of us consider Costa del Sol a place full of charm and passion. Here you can find many beautiful corners, perfect spots to have a romantic moment with your other half and even places with a legend.

A good example of this is the Rock of Lovers in Antequera, a town in the Malaga region about 49 miles away from Fuengirola.

There is a romantic legend about this massive limestone rock and because of this it is known as “The Rock of Lovers”. The legend is about a pair of lovers (he a Christian, she a Moorish princess) who tried to run away from the soldiers sent by her father by climbing the rock. When they realized they had no escape they decided to jump to make sure they would be together for eternity.

Thanks to this legend, which is kind of like a Spanish “Romeo & Juliet”, this region has a certain romantic and melancholic atmosphere. Had you ever heard about this rock and its legend? Are there legends related to your town or city?

Many of you are very loyal guests and visit Hotel Angela and Costa del Sol very frequently. You might even consider it a romantic destination as you may have met someone special or your partner in here, maybe you have had many holidays here with your other half, or important events in your life may have happened here, so this might be a very special place for you.  We would love to hear any romantic story or any special memory linked to Hotel Angela or to Costa del Sol, so if you fancy sharing them with us please do it by writing a comment here on the blog of Hotel Angela o by posting it on our Facebook Page.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
