Sevillanas

09loka

The Fair of Fuengirola continues this week as it is on until the 12th of October.  

As we explained on Friday, during our special activity about the fair, the Fair of Fuengirola is one of the most important in Costa del Sol, and thinking about it is thinking about beautiful flamenco dresses and the sound of “sevillanas” playing in the background.

Although the “sevillanas” is a typical dancing and singing originally from Sevilla it is heard and danced in all fairs and festivals in Andalusia. 

“Sevillanas” is divided in 4 parts and it is usually danced in pairs. The lyrics can talk about many different topics like everyday life or important religious and love events among many other things.

Its origin is set around the Catholic Monarchs times and nowadays it is the most danced regional dance in Spain and abroad.

If right now you are on holiday at Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, and have not visited the fair yet, we recommend you do it as there is still plenty of time.

You will surely have fun there and might enjoy seeing locals dancing this mesmerising dance!

Fair of Fuengirola 2017

02loka

As many of you might already know the Fair of Fuengirola starts this week on Friday, the 6th of October.

For this reason and because we love sharing our lovely traditions with you that same day, the 6th of October, Hotel Angela has organised a very special free activity about the fair at 10:30 A.M.

In it we will give you information about the fair, we will inform you about what is going on in town and at the fairground, we will explain you about the traditional flamenco dress and the accessories that go with it and we will explain you what to eat and drink at the fairground during the fair.

Regarding the official programme of the fair we would like to highlight and recommend the flamenco mass in honour of Virgen del Rosario. Every year this is held on the 7th of October at 10:00 on Constitution Square, right in the city centre.  This mass is not a common one; it does have the wow factor as it is quite festive and most of the many who attend it come wearing beautiful flamenco dresses.

If you want to have fun with us and get some information about the fair, we would love to see you on Friday at 10:30 A.M. in our Snack Bar. By the way, besides good info we will also give a free glass of rebujito, the most popular drink of the fair, to all guests who attend our special activity.

Enjoy the fair at Hotel Angela!!

25syys

Autumn arrived only 3 days ago, but this does not mean the fun is over as the Fair of Torremolinos starts on Wednesday, 27th of September.  

The Fair of Torremolinos, also known as St. Michael’s fair, will be on till Sunday the 1st of October, so if you are currently staying at Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, we certainly recommend you to visit it. 

The most important day of the fair is Friday the 29th of September, as it is St. Michael’s Day. On that day there will be a mass at midday in his honour and a lovely procession from 7:00 P.M.

In Torremolinos, as it happens in Malaga and other towns in Costa del Sol, the fair celebrations are held in the town centre during the morning and the afternoon and in the fairground from the evening till well past midnight.  

As you know getting from Fuengirola to Torremolinos is cheap and easy thanks to the great train that runs along Costa del Sol.

Our fair is coming soon now! It is so exciting!
