We know that many of you possibly know Fuengirola even better than us as some of you have been coming to Hotel Angela for almost 40 years.
This city is so culturally rich and interesting that whenever we find out something new about it we get excited.
For example, did you know that Fuengirola has a sister city which is 4885 miles from us?
Our sister city is called New Iberia and it is in Louisiana in the United States.
New Iberia is the 10th biggest city of its state and it is much larger than Fuengirola though Fuengirola is more populated. Due to its subtropical weather there it rains quite a lot while in Fuengirola we have a fantastic Mediterranean weather with around 300 sunny days a year.
Why do you think these two very different cities have such a special link? Colonization is the answer. In 1779 New Iberia was colonized by Spanish colonists from Malaga, so for this reason this American city is not only sisters with Fuengirola but also with Alhaurín de la Torre, another town on Costa del Sol…Interesting right?
Fuengirola always manages to surprise us!!
