This fair, also known as the fair of San Miguel, is an important event in Torremolinos which takes places during the month of September and that is considered a Festivity of National Tourist Interest, so if you visit the Costa del Sol on your holidays and it coincides with this celebration, you must pass by before you leave.
Characteristic elements of this fair are the ox carriages with decorated trailers, the horses, the wine of Malaga and the cured ham.
The fair of Torremolinos is celebrated during the day in the centre of town and during the night in the fairground where we’ll find plenty of typical fair huts.
This ‘Romeria’, half pagan half religious, dates back to the olden days and is very popular amongst the tourists that visit Torremolinos each year.
Its origin is not associated with San Miguel as its name indicates and it was more a festive event that was celebrated during the month of August until 1970 when it gained major importance and currently has a larger number of visitors every year.
This pilgrimage is celebrated on the previous Sunday to the 29th of September each year.
Torremolinos is situated very near Malaga airport and can be accessed via the Mediterranean motorway or the N-340 road that borders the coast.
