The fair is about to start!

02loka

The fair of Fuengirola, in honour of its patron saint Virgen del Rosario, is round the corner as, like every year, it will start on the 6th and will finish on the 12th of October.

The fair is one of the most important in Costa del Sol and it takes place in the fairground (Recinto Ferial) though you will also be able to feel it in the streets and bars of the city centre because during these days they will have a very special festive atmosphere everywhere in town.

The fairground has 32 “casetas” open to all visitors. There you will be able to taste good wine and eat tasty Spanish ham among many other things, enjoy the typical music and dancing and also look at beautiful flamenco dresses.

On Friday the 6th, first day of the Fair, is when the opening speech and the lightning take place.

The 7th is the most important day as it is the day of the patron saint Virgen del Rosario and for this reason there is a flamenco mass in her honour. The mass is held in the centre of Fuengirola, in Plaza de la Constitución by the church named after this virgin.

After this popular mass there will be a beautiful parade of carriages and horses towards the fairground because horses and equestrian activities are of great importance in this fair.

In Fuengirola the fair is enjoyed day and night. During the afternoon wine and sevillanas dancing are the highlight, while later in the evening the spotlight is shared with the fair attractions.

If you are lucky to be at Hotel Ángela during the fair do not hesitate a second, visit Fuengirola city centre and the fairground and get to live and enjoy the fair. We are sure that you have never seen something like this.

Besides, during that week Hotel Ángela will organize some classes related to the fair that you will surely love, so pay attention to our Facebook page and do not miss any detail. The experience, no doubt, will be unforgettable and unique, so we would really love you to share with us your pictures, your opinions and comments about the fair through our Facebook page.  ¡¡Olé!!

Get to know: Francisco Vega

18syys

This September Hotel Ángela has the pleasure to introduce you Francisco Vega, one of our receptionists.

Francisco started working with us 18 years ago. He currently works as a receptionist, but he has previously worked as a bellboy, watchman and assistant receptionist.

He is a very friendly person, he loves meeting people and sharing stories and anecdotes. He says he is friends with lots of guests and that when they come to the hotel they can spend hours talking about football. He also says it moves him when they ask him about his son or when they bring him something.

It seems he never goes to bed early; he confesses he is passionate about football and he loves meeting his friends and have a nice BBQ. He also says that if he could he would go on holiday to Thailand again . He likes flamenco and rock music.

When in Fuengirola he recommends you to go to the beach that is by the castle, “Playa del Castillo”, to eat lovely fried fish in “El Choco” (Calle Francisco Cano, very close to Hotel Ángela), to visit the “Trotamundos” restaurant (Camino Condesa, near the bullring) and also to go to “Taberna del Pintxo” for some tapas (Calle Hermanos Pinzón, in the city centre).

To finish off Francisco wanted to share a message with you:  “Do not leave Fuengirola without having eaten tapas or “espetos” (sardines on the spit). Not doing it should be considered a crime!!”

Thanks a lot, Francisco! We will take your advice!

If you have the pleasure of knowing him and you would like to leave a comment, please do it through our Facebook page.
