    Fairgrounds

    The market site is really called '' the Fairground '' it is such a large and beautiful site that Iam sure it has many different events held here.What I do know is that Tuesday Market is held here for all sorts of goods for sale like in any market.
    But on Saterdays the market is a ''Flea Market , or used goods market .
    Vendors come to this market from almost all countries in Europe to sell their stuff and you count on all different variety of goods for sale .
    There is one more market in Fuengirola Marina area ,held only on sundays.

    Vendor stall

    The importance of the market is not surprising if we take into account that Fuengirola is one of the most important craft centres of the province, where a large number of workshops produce works of pottery, goldsmithery, silversmithery, jewellery, leather goods, wood furniture.
    Vendors come from all over the place.
    and a large variety of wares are for sale including every day stuff.

    Saturday Market

    Mercaillo

    I love Saturday Market, as many many people. The whole Fair Recint, at the centre of Fuengirola, gets full of a market of second hand things, very curious things. Its a very good one. From 9 to 2.
    For going there you can take the bus and just get down where everybody does or take the train and stop at "Los Boliches" stop, that leave you very near (just follow the people) or ask for "Market" or "Mercaillo" or "Recinto Ferial" .

    The hotel food was so crap we eat out every night.The first night when we were queing up for restaurant we waited like half an hour and bloke at desk kept looking.When we got there he said sorry no shorts allowed.He let us wait half an hour then told us.What a prat.He could of told us as soon as we walked up to join que.He saw us walk up.Another thing is the buffet food was cold and not enough to go around.It was really bad.But saying this it was 7 years ago so the hotel may be great now.Enough said about hotel.

    There is a huge market held on Tuesadays.There is a water park near by which is worth going to called Parque Acuatico and it has water slides and pools and is open from May til Sept(end).Great for children and big kids like me ;-)
