It is quite obvious that Fuengirola is a very international town as it is visited by an important number of tourists and it also has many foreign residents, but did you know that Fuengirola has the biggest Finnish community outside Scandinavia?
The first Finnish arrived in the 70s and from that moment they have not really stopped.
Due to the big number of Finnish people who nowadays live in Fuengirola they have their own media and even their own Finnish school, a unique and outstanding school in Spain that it is considered to have an excellent educational system.
These days at Los Boliches Library you can even find some books in Finnish. The reason is that the majority of them loves Los Boliches and chooses the Los Pacos district as their favourite place to live, therefore the number of establishments owned by Finnish people in Los Boliches and Los Pacos is quite big.
By the way, have you ever visited the Finnish shopping centre in Los Boliches right beside Hotel Angela?
