Day of the Bike in Fuengirola

30huhti

Did you know that this Sunday, 6th of May, it is the second edition of the Day of the Bike in Fuengirola?

In our town each day more people are leaving the car or moped aside and are starting to use bikes more frequently, which makes sense as having such great weather and so many bike paths makes it easy.

The Day of the Bike is a charity event as all funds raised will go to some to AVOI, a well-known Charity Association of Hospital Volunteers in aid of Children with Cancer in Malaga.

The event has been organised by the Fuengirola Town Council and its aim is to raise funds for charity and to make participants enjoy this beautiful sport.

This cycling route will start in the Fairground and will go through Avenida Jesús Santos Rein, Avenida Juan Gómez Juanito, Calle Camilo José Cela, Calle Málaga, Calle Héroes de Baler, Paseo Marítimo towards Los Boliches, Calle Rondeña, Avenida de los Boliches and Padre Jesús Cautivo, finishing in the Fairground where it started.

If you are currently on holiday with us at Hotel Angela and you love cycling or watching cycling events, you surely will enjoy the second Day of the Bike in Fuengirola!

23rd International Festival of Fuengirola

23huhti

Are you currently having a great holiday with us at Hotel Angela? If that is the case, you can consider yourself lucky as this week that has just started is one of the most important and awaited in Fuengirola.

What makes this week so special is the International Festival of Fuengirola, one of the most popular events in Costa del Sol.

As usual the festival will be hosted at the fairground, and this year it will be on from Friday the 27th of April till Tuesday the 1st of May.

Tuesday the 1st of May is in fact a bank holiday in Spain as it is International Workers Day, so many will surely visit the festival to make the most of its last day.

The International Festival of Fuengirola is one of the most consolidated and successful events in Costa del Sol as this will be its 23rd edition.

Although it has been hosted for many years, there is always something new and exciting about it. This year for example Puerto Rico, South Africa and Ukraine will participate in it for the first time.

The fairground will home a total of 33 countries from across the globe, so this is no doubt the perfect opportunity to discover their local dishes, culture and typical music and dances without leaving Costa del Sol.

While the festival is on, from 1:00 P.M to 4:00 A.M there will be lots of things going on and lots  to do at the fairground, though the most expected day is always Saturday as it is when the traditional parade takes place. This stunning parade will start around 11:30 A.M in Plaza de España (town centre) and will arrive to the fairground at around 1:00 P.M.

Same as in previous editions there will be a free entry International Trade Fair that will contain 41 stalls where you will have the chance to buy food products.

Do not miss the International Festival of Fuengirola! You will surely have a brilliant time!!

Cave art in Ardales

02huhti

Did you know that about a month ago the prestigious magazine “Science” published that the paintings found in a cave in Malaga were done 20.000 years before the arrival of our species?

The cave is in Ardales, a beautiful village in inland Malaga, about 43 miles away from Fuengirola.

This cave was found by chance in 1821 after an earthquake and has over a thousand paintings. These paintings are the oldest in Europe as they were not done by Homo Sapiens but by Neanderthals.

The Cave of Ardales can be visited all year round, from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:30 A.M., prior reservation by calling (+0034) 952 45 80 46.

Entry price is 10€ for adults and 5€ for childen, but this price not only includes a visit to the cave but also a visit to the History and Tradition Museum of Ardales.

If you are planning to come to Hotel Angela, and you are interested in prehistory, we certainly recommend you visit it as we think you will really enjoy it.

All you need is some comfy shoes and to be a bit of an adventurer.

Make the most of your holiday at Hotel Angela and discover our past!
