The fair kicks off from 6th until the 12th Oct and will take place at the city fairgrounds. The event is in honour of its patron saint ‘Nuestra Señora la Virgen del Rosario” (Our Lady the Virgin of the Rosary) and is a pretty regarded fair, due to its elaborate display and attention taken by the organisation. It’s said to be one of the most prestigious in Andalusia.
There is a considerable programme involved here, which hosts activities featuring Our Lady of the Rosary, many rides for the kids at the playgrounds, many lovely horses which feature heavily in this event, lots of lights and smells of food coming from a variety of eateries. The local ladies (and sometimes tourists) will put on their best flamenco dress and take to the streets. Great fair fun to be had by all.
