fuengirola-medieval-festival-2016The market takes place between 11th and 15th of August and this year there will be 80 different crafts stalls and activities for all ages.

There will be leather craftsmen, potters, stonemasons, etc. working on the market, besides activities like archery, pony rides, storytellers, jugglers and other performances. As usual there will be plenty of food and beverages of all varieties.

The doors are open from 7 p.m.to 2 a.m. and the entry is free. Last year there were more than 90,000 visitors during the event. There are many medieval markets around Spain, but there are few that have such a great frame as the one in El Castillo Sohail.
