Exhibition about Japan in CAC Mijas

14Jan

Many of you might already know that at Hotel Angela we quite like art and because of this some beautiful pieces of art decorate our hotel.

Due to our passion for art we frequently use this blog to recommend you some of the many great exhibitions we have the fortune to have available in Costa del Sol.

Today is one of these occasions as since the 30th of November and until the 27th of February CAC Mijas is housing a very interesting exhibition called “Japan: Culture and Tradition”.

This exhibition is on display in Exhibition Room number 2 of CAC Mijas and its purpose is to celebrate the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relationships between Spain and Japan.

In CAC Mijas now, you can see many beautiful engravings in rice paper from the 19th Century by some of Japan’s most famous artists.

These works show Japanese everyday life scenes and several characters like emperors, samurais and geishas.

Estas obras muestran escenas de la vida cotidiana japonesa en las que aparecen distintos personajes como emperadores, samurais o geishas.

Apart from the engravings there is also a crystal urn with a “kabuto”, which is a type of helmet used by ancient Japanese warrior, as well as a “katana”.

As we have said in previous blogs when we have recommended CAC Mijas, this museum is in the centre of Mijas Pueblo, in calle Malaga, and it is open Monday to Saturday from 10 P.M to 6 P.M.

CAC Mijas is a very popular museum in Costa del Sol. Its regular entry price to access all facilities of the museum is 3 euros, and the price for groups and over 65s is only 2 euros.

If you had planned to visit Mijas soon we recommend you visit this interesting exhibition about the Empire of the Rising Sun!

Sculpture exhibition in Los Boliches

27Août

This week our blog is about art, as right now there is a fantastic free exhibition very close to our hotel.

The exhibition is called “Un Nautilus en la Ciudad” (“A Nautilus in Town”), it is housed in the Exhibition Room of Tenencia de Alcaldía de Los Boliches, right beside Los Boliches Market, and it will be open to visit until Friday, the 31st of August, from Monday to Friday from 09:00 A.M to 2:00 P.M.

This exhibition contains sculptures by Natalia Madueño, a local artist who used the sea as the topic of her final thesis project, so it is because of this that most of the pieces in the exhibition are related to it.

Well, if you are currently on holiday at Hotel Angela, your hotel en Fuengirola, you love the sea and are also interested in art, we recommend you not to miss this amazing exhibition.

You will surely love it!

Sevillanas

09Oct

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!
