This week (from the 14th to the 18th August) is ‘Feria’ week here in Benalmadena with the ‘Pueblo’ (Town) celebrating festivities in honour of their patron, the Virgen de la Cruz.

Virgen de la Cruz Fair in BenalmádenaObviously this is a very traditional event and many of the activities and events organised for the week may not appeal to many of our guests; however, we’ve put together a short list of – what we feel are – some of the highlights of the fair and that you might enjoy. Here goes…
