Fair of Marbella

05Juin

We know many of you visit us in October because you love to spend the Fair of Fuengirola with us. The fair is something we enjoy lots and while it is on the atmosphere at our hotel and in town just can’t be better!

The Fair of Fuengirola is not the only one in our region though as each city and town has its own. In June, with the arrival of summer, the season of fairs start too, and the Fair of Marbella is the first to arrive.

The Fair of Marbella starts tomorrow, the 6th of June, and will be on till Monday the 12th of June.

As it happens in all other fairs the Fair of Marbella also has a big day. In this case the most important day of the festive week is Sunday the 11th of June as it is the day of St. Bernabé, the patron saint of Marbella.

As in other fairs of the area during the afternoon and early evening the fair celebrations take place in the city centre, while the late evening celebrations are held at the fairground.

If right now you have the pleasure of being on holiday with us as Hotel Ángela, your hotel in Fuengirola, why don’t you make the most of the week by attending the Fair of Marbella?

We are sure you will enjoy it!

Interesting facts abour Italian food

29Mai

A few weeks ago we announced here on the blog that every Friday we now have themed dinners in the restaurant of Hotel Angela.

If back then we shared with you a few interesting facts about Spanish food, we now would like to do the same about Italian food as that is the theme for this Friday’s, the 2nd of June,  dinner:

There you go:

  • When we talk about Italian food it is impossible not to mention pizza, a dish that back in the day was considered as food of the poor.
  • Authentic pizzas are meant to have a very thin base.
  • In 1889 Queen Margherita of Italy tried pizza for the first time and she liked it so much that she ordered to get differed kind of pizzas prepared. One of them had the colours of her country (White from the mozzarella, red from the tomatoes and green from the basil). After this, pizzas got more popular and this is the reason why there is a pizza now called Margherita, in honour of this queen.
  • It is very important for Italians to have water, bread and wine on their tables when they are going to have their meals.
  • Italian food is part of the Mediterranean Diet, so fruits and vegetables are main ingredients in many of its dishes. Both are low in fat and also in calories, so they help to maintain our weight an even to lose some.
  • Fruits, vegetables and legumes are also rich in fibre, which is particularty good for our digestive system; it also helps to reduce cholesterol levels, to maintain sugar levels and to prevent constipation.
  • Pasta, together with pizza, is one of the classic dishes of Italian cuisine. Not many know that it is possible to eat pasta without putting on weight, but it is, as pasta is not high in fats. If you are controlling those pounds, you should always try to choose pasta dishes with light sauces.

Italian food, same as Spanish, is not only one of people’s favourites but also one of the tastiest and healthiest.

We hope this Friday you enjoy the lovely Italian dinner our chefs at Hotel Angela have prepared for you in our restaurant.

Buon appetito!

The flag of the province of Malaga

22Mai

We know that many of our guests at Hotel Angela have a great sight and are able to spot new things almost instantly… a good example of this is when at Christmas time we do our elf game, we hide it around the hote and  it does not take you long at all to find it!

Now our question is… have you realised we have a new flag right by the main entrance of our hotel?

Only a few weeks ago here at Hotel Angela there was an official act, this new flag was put on the flagpole  and in it participated local authorities as well as our new Hotel Manager Salvador Gonzalez.

The new flag we now have is the flag of the province of Malaga. This blue and white flag with the badge of Malaga in the middle is quite recent as it was designed only in 1978.

In fact the blue and white flag with no badge belonged to the Sea District of Malaga, and by adding the badge it became the flag of the province… quite insteresting, isn’t it?

Next time you visit the Angela take a good look… it is quite lovely!
