“Snatch” in Malaga


Did you know that right now, and till the 14th of May, the second season of British-American TV series “Snatch” is being shot in different spots in Malaga?

The series is about a peculiar group of British gangsters and it is starred by Rupert Grint, best known for his role as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter saga. Grint has already been seen shooting scenes in Malaga Marina as well as in the beautiful town of Nerja.

Besides Malaga and Nerja filming in other places of the coast like Marbella, La Caleta de Velez or Rincon de la Victoria is also on the cards.

If you are visiting Hotel Angela soon and planning to explore Costa del Sol, we recommend you to keep your eyes open… who knows, you might see TV cameras around shooting one of the most awaited series of the year.

We are willing to see how the filming went and how beautiful Malaga looks on our TV screens!

7th Edition of La Cazuela de la Abuela


As it is February and it is chillier than usual there is nothing better now than having some wintery comfort food, and this is why each February Fuengirola organizes the popular food route called “La Cazuela de la Abuela”.

This year in fact will be its 7th edition and 57 establishments will participate in it. From Friday the 16th till Sunday the 4th of March they all will offer a delicious casserole and a drink ( glass of wine, beer, soft drink or water) for only 2€.

As it is now tradition the Rivera Beach Club, which belongs to our sister hotel Hotel Yaramar, will also participate this year with a tasty traditional casserole from Jerez that has chickpeas, chorizo and black pudding as main ingredients… It sounds lovely, right?

If you are currently on holiday in Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, and love Spanish food we certainly recommend you to try the new amazing casserole chef Salvador from the Rivera Beach Club has prepared for you all this year and to vote for it!

We also would like to wish Salvador best of luck and hope he gets in a position as great as in the past editions!

Malaga Raisins at the Patrimony Museum of Malaga (MUPAM)


Last month here on the blog of Hotel Angela we have recommend you to visit the Interactive Music Museum of Malaga (MIMMA) due to its fantastic entertainment program.

Today we would like to recommend another great museum in Malaga that is currently housing a very interesting exhibition.

The museum we are talking about is the Patrimony Museum of Malaga ( MUPAM) and its exhibition is about Malaga raisins.

This exhibition in fact started on the 17th of October and it was meant to finish on Sunday the 28th of January, but due to the big number of visitors it has received it ended up getting extended until this Sunday the 11th of February.

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

The exhibition about Malaga raisins is composed of 105 beautiful illustrations that back in the day were used to decorate the packaging of the raisins exported in the 19th century and the first third of the 20th to far away places like New York, London, Buenos Aires or Stockholm.

The Patrimony Museum ( MUPAM), opened in 2007, and it is located in Malaga city centre in the well-known Paseo de Reding, so getting there won’t be too difficult for you.

If right now you are enjoying a lovely holiday with us at Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, and you fancy having a great day in Malaga exploring it and visiting cool exhibitions, ¡the Malaga Patrimony Museum is the perfect starting point to do so!
