Festivals in Manilva area
13 March 2009 @ 19:35

There seem to alot of local festivals on the Costa del Sol and if you are staying at the Casares del Sol self catering apartments you should find out whether there are any festivals in the Manilva area. Spain has many festivals and Andalucia has many festivals and the local area has festivals - so altogether there are quite a few holiday days.

Ones that are really good to see in the Manilva area are:

23 June - Noches de San Juan - It's the old pagan midsummer celebration which has been 'Christianified'  - many locals regard this as the start of summer.

A huge tableau like seem in the picture here - taken 2005 in Sabinillas - is constructed on the beach in Sabinillas a few days before the event. This is a work of art and an different theme every year and around midnight, the whole thing is set alight. It is customary to walk into the sea to wash away any bad luck as it burns.

There are also fireworks on the beach in Sabinillas, live music and dancing until the early hours of the morning.

16 July - Virgen del Carmen - when the fishing boats in Sabinillas and Duquesa are decorated with images of the Virgen and set out to sea to sail up and down the Manilva coast. The launch of the boats in Sabinillas can be a little difficult if the sea happens to be rough. When the boats return to shore the images of the Virgen are returned to their place of honour in the churches of Sabinillas and Castillo Duquesa.

my best memories are of family holidays in spain when i was 7+ years of age, i am now 49 years of age and have the good fortune to be running a Hotel on the Costa Blanca Coast (Cabo Roig). What makes Spain is the fiestas which take place all year round, the fiestas bring together all nationalities, of course the sunny climate helps, the Spanish people are some of the friendliest people you could wish to meet, especially if you can speak their language.
