Happy Halloween!!

28loka

Halloween is coming soon and this year more than ever at Hotel Angela we are willing to celebrate it with you as last year due to the refurbishment we couldn’t.

To us Halloween is one of the most fun parties ever as we get to wear costumes and we get to find the child in us.

As Thursday is round the corner, here at Hotel Angela, we are putting the final touches to the Halloween Party we have stored for you. We really hope you love it!

On this occasion we have decorated our entertainment room in a special way as our theme party will be held there. On that night we will have good fun Halloween games and also a Halloween based comic performance.

This year the funny pumpkin competition for our staff will also come back. In 2011 we did it for the first time and although most of them had no experience decorating pumpkins they did an impressing job, so this year their creativity will surely surprise us once more.

If right now you are staying with us at Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, from tomorrow Tuesday you will have the chance to see and vote for their scary pumpkins as they will be displayed by reception. If you are not here, do not worry, you will be able to see them and vote on our Facebook page.

We have no idea how spooky they are going to look, but we are certain that it will be terribly difficult to choose our favourite!

Max’s Caravan

21loka

Max’s Caravan is one of the most legendary tourist attractions on Costa del Sol.Max's Caravan - Hotel Ángela Fuengirola

Located in Mijas Pueblo, this peculiar museum opened its doors in 1972 becoming one of the many appeals this beautiful town has.

Professor Max was the stage name of Juan Elegido Millán, a magician and hypnotist from Guadalajara who also studied medicine.

Its bohemian and adventurous spirit made him travel the world. In these travels, he started to get and collect miniatures.

The collection exhibited counts with 360 pieces. The most popular of them are the portrait of Abraham Lincoln on a pin head or Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Dinner on a rice grain.

Max’s Caravan is a unique museum on Costa del Sol and around the world. It is open daily and it is situated in Avenida Del Compás, one of the main streets in Mijas.

If we have managed to awaken your curiosity and you are one of those who appreciate peculiar stuff Hotel Angela recommends you to go to Mijas and visit this special museum.

Malaga Raisins

14loka

We know that many of you are loyal guests of Hotel Angela and that you have visited us for many years and you love Costa del Sol, for this reason, as you possibly don’t know much about it, today we would like to talk about the most traditional side of our beautiful region.Malaga Raisins - Hotel Angela Fuengirola

We tend to relate Costa del Sol to sea, sun, fishing and holiday makers, and we forget that here agriculture is also important, to the point that the muscatel grape industry is one of the most outstanding in the region.

The famous muscatel grapes grow in the Axarquía (Eastern Costa del Sol) and Manilva areas (Western Costa del Sol bordering the province of Cadiz).

These grapes get ripe by the end of July or beginning of August and once they have been collected they can be used as table grapes, for wine production or as raisins.

The drying process is a very old technique that consists of drying them under the sun.

The grapes have an even dark reddish colour, an intense sweet flavour and some seeds.

In Malaga and Andalusia, possibly because of our Arabic heritage, raisins have an important role in our gastronomy as they are usually used to go with meat, to create sauces or to prepare some sweets or desserts.

Did you know how important raisins were on Costa del Sol? Have you tried any dish which contained them during your stay at Hotel Angela? What are the typical products of your region? We are very curious and we would like to know it, so if you fancy you can tell us on our Facebook page.
