If you have visited us before this time of year you might already know that this week is quite important in Fuengirola, and especially in Los Boliches.
From Wednesday the 15th to Sunday the 19th of July is the Fair of Los Boliches, so if right now you are on holiday with us at Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, we recommend you to go to the fairground to take a look as the fair will be held there.
The 16th of July is the most important day of the week not only because it is a local holiday but also because it is the day of Virgen del Carmen, the patron saint of Los Boliches.
Although this is celebrated in the whole town in Los Boliches it is lived in a different and a more intense way as this virgin is the saint of sailors and our neighbourhood once was a typical fishermen’s quarter.
Being a man of the sea is a very hard and risky job, so due to the protection they believe the virgin offers them every 16th of July many of them take her out in procession as a way to say thank you.
This procession is considered by many as the most beautiful and special of the year as it ends with the virgin in the sea surrounded by boats and fireworks.
If you have the fortune of being at Hotel Angela on Thursday we invite you to enjoy this celebration from our solarium from 8:30 P.M.
Celebrate with us one of the most beautiful days of the year!
