Fuengirola - Running from October 6th to 12th, the annual Feria de la Virgen del Rosario in Fuengirola is full of color, sights and sounds.
A week during the year when business slows down a bit, people take a few days off. When you see your friends and neighbors dressed somewhat differently, with gorgeous dresses on the ladies and girls.
The men also dress so smartly, in traditional caballero style as they ride their horses, or drive their horse carts and carriages.
