After the success of the previous edition, the white village of Mijas will celebrate its second Luna Mora Festival. Last year, this unique event managed to attract more than 20,000 visitors and organisers are hoping to more than double that figure attracting over 45,000 people to this years festivities.
One of the highlights of this year’s event is the fact that it will be celebrated over two consecutive weekends; from the 17th to 19th July and from the 31st July to 2nd August. The other notable addition this year is that all the activities and attractions will extend into the centre of town multiplying the festivals surface area by five.
The city of Malaga is getting ready to host, for the 3rd year running, a fabulous series of summer evening concerts. This latest edition, of what has become a consolidated event in the city’s summer events calendar, will delight spectators with four free classical music concerts to be held in the Gibralfaro Castle and the Alcazaba fortress.
The Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra and two musical ‘ensembles’, ‘Músicos Concerto Málaga and Ensembre Ars Cello, the latter made up of students, ex-students and teachers from Malaga’s Music Conservatory, will be performing in two of Malaga’s most iconic land marks.
Torremolinos has a little hidden secret which very few visitors and tourists know about: The Molino de Inca Botanical Gardens.
Located just behind the popular Aqualand Water Park, this small, yet stunning, botanical garden offers a little piece of paradise to all who visit. Although the gardens are just 20 minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of the hectic town centre, you actually feel like you’re miles away from anywhere.
This Summer, the picturesque white village of Mijas will play host to a series of concerts featuring some of the world’s best cover bands and singers.
Under the ‘Hot Summer Nights’ banner, this series of concerts kicks of next Thursday 25th June with a fantastic Swing Night followed by Spain’s top ‘Bruce Springsteen’ tribute band in Friday 26th June.
A trip into Málaga’s city centre is a must for all who visit the Costa del Sol and, as from last month, there’s a new star attraction which you’ll need to add to your list of places to see: The Terraces of Málaga Cathedral.
Opened to the general public last month, these new terraces are located almost fifty metres above sea level and offer visitors stunning views over the city and a great perspective of the famous Alcazaba fortress. If you don’t mind the 200 step climb, this really is a unique experience which allows you to walk over an area of the cathedral that has never been open to the public and where you’ll be able to take spectacular photos of the city.
