Malaga Celebrates the 7th Edition of ‘La Noche en Blanco’ With More Than 200 Free Cultural Activities
Malaga’s ‘La Noche en Blanco’ (White Night) has established itself as one the city’s most important cultural events. This Saturday 10th May from 8:00pm to 02:00am, all who visit the Costa del Sol’s capital will be treated to an unbelievable selection of free cultural activities.
The event organisers (Malaga City Council’s Department of Culture) hope to break a record this weekend with around 200 activities spread throughout the city and grouped into various themes:
- Exhibition halls and art galleries
- Artistic performances and unique street-facing spaces
Visitors will also be able to enjoy activities related to visual arts; literary and scenic get-togethers; concerts; guided tours of attractions which aren’t usually open to the public at these times (such as the Alcazaba fortress) and other programmed surprises during this special evening.
From the 11th to the 13th April, Benalmadena’s Marina will host the first edition of the Costa del Sol Olive Oil Fair, an event which the organisers are hoping, will become one of the industry’s most important (in Spain).
This is the first time the event is held in the Malaga province and has the objective of highlighting the latest tendencies, technological innovations, processes, as well as elaboration and extraction of one of Andalucia’s most treasured natural resources: Olive oil.
Here in Benalmadena, we are fortunate to enjoy one of the most spectacular public parks in Andalucia: Paloma Park. Its’ total surface area of 100.000 square metres makes it the ideal spot to enjoy many outdoor activities and observe the diverse wildlife and flora.
Within its grounds there is an area that houses one of best open-air collections of Cacti and other Succulent plants in all of Europe. This impressive 6000 square metre exhibit is open all year round for visitors to enjoy its stunning and varied collection.
With the amazing weather we’ve been enjoying the past few weeks, we can’t think of a better way to enjoy the sunshine than sitting and enjoying some delicious seafood accompanied by an ice cold beer!
Well, this weekend, you’ll have the perfect opportunity to do so. From this Thursday 20th March – and until Sunday 23rd March – Benalmádena Marina will host the 5th edition of its increasingly popular ‘Feria del Marisco’ (Seafood Fair).
Everyday – from March to December (2014) – the famous ‘La Malagueta’ bullring in Malaga city will host a series of activities and shows related to the art of bullfighting and Andalusian culture.
