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.
