Sohail castle in Fuengirola will host the annual Medieval market from Wednesday 12 until Sunday 16 September.

This is one of the most charming medieval markets on the Costa del Sol, mainly because of the privileged setting where it is held. The event will present dancing minstrels, falconry displays, archery, juggling and traditional gastronomy of the period. Other attractions will include medieval folk music and fire eating demonstrations. There will be plenty to entertain children as well, such as court jesters, dragon hunters, story telling and magic shows.

Organised by Fuengirola town hall, the market will consist of approximately 80 stalls offering handicrafts and products including jewellery, clothing and accessories, food products, oils, natural soaps, aromatic herbs and spices.

Visitors will witness master potters, stonemasons and leather craftsmen plying their trades and there will also be workshops that will demonstrate the methods used by craftsmen during this period.

All efforts are made to recreate the atmosphere of the middle ages. Traders dress in medieval outfits, while colourful side shows and musical performances add a touch of authenticity to the proceedings.

The event, which is free, begins each day at 7pm and continues until 2am, with the exception of Sunday, when the market will close a midnight.
