Benalmádena Pueblo will host the seventh edition of the town’s popular Arab souk from this week from Thursday until Sunday 27 August.

Organised by the Benalmádena town hall and Andalucía Medieval, the Arab market will take place in various locations throughout the town and is aimed at promoting the area’s Moorish beauty and charm.

Locals and visitors will be able to enjoy the best of Arab culture through its products and traditions. The narrow streets of Benalmádena Pueblo will be draped in exotic fabrics and traditional Arabic style tents. More than 20 stalls will offer a choice of teas, spices, clothes, ceramics, jewellery and gastronomy. There will also be workshops promoting Arabic arts and crafts, street parades, jugglers, and demonstrations of belly dancing and Arabian music.

The main market will be installed in the Plaza de las Tres Culturas, Plaza de España and in the ‘Jardines del Muro’.

This is a unique opportunity to take a trip back in time and let your senses absorb the aromas of the exotic food while experiencing the delights of Arabic culture.

The Arab market is open from 11am until 1am.
