15 Jul Malaga prepares for its August Fair
Malaga is the definition of passion and its fair is a 100% the image of Spain. In its origins it was a commemorative event because of the incorporation of the Kingdom of Castile by the Catholic Monarchs, but not much of that is still alive, what is important now of these days is the called flamenco and the typical wine, Cartojal.
This massive event hosts each year more than 500.000 visitors who want to enjoy the good vibes and the flair of the Andalusian people. Happiness and tradition both in one of the most important fairs in Andalusia and moment in which the streets of Málaga are dressed with flowers and polka dots.
Going inside Larios street through the main door is the best feeling that carries this party, when once inside we should just wait for the street musicians to play the soundtrack of you afternoon.
When the sun goes down, everybody ends up in the night fair, whose bright door shocks everyone who looks at it. The stands are the focus of that place. Enjoying this event is great, but if you want to get to know Málaga, take two more days to visit the emblematic places of the city, as the Alcazaba, Muelle Uno, Picasso Museum and the Thyssen or the Pompidou Center. Of course, you cannot miss the typical sweet wine or the vermut in Pimpi’s bar where most of the known faces of the Spanish and international celebrities had passed by.
Come and visit Málaga from the 12th to the 19th of August and enjoy the city. Do not forget your Cartojal, your comb and your fan. Take a look to Málaga’s tourism website where you will find all the needed info about transport, beaches, cultural events, accommodation and more!
