Did you know that…?

The origin of the Malaga Fair goes back to the commemoration of the city's incorporation in the crown of Castile by the Catholic Monarchs, who entered Malaga on 19 August 1487.

They re-conquered the city, recovering the statue of the "Virgen de la Victoria", now Malaga's patron saint.

Did you know that…?

Verdiales are the earliest form of the Andalusian "fandango". Originally peasant music from the countryside, they have evolved very little since those days, the tradition passed from father to son. They constitute a rare example of living folklore with all their original authenticity.

The group of musicians, singers and dancers is known as the "Panda de Verdiales", and their performances, "Fiesta de Verdiales".

Did you know that…?

There are more than 40 different styles of "malagueñas". This is a branch of flamenco that is traditional to Malaga, and it has no special dance of its own.

It is a highly rhythmic, melodious and solemn form of flamenco song that comes from old Malaga "fandangos". It came to the fore as a style of flamenco at the beginning of the 19th century.

Did you know that…?

Coinciding with the inauguration of the Malaga Fair in 2006 and 2007, the MTV Malaga Summer event was held both years on La Malagueta Beach.

On both occasions, major Spanish and international artists came together for the event, while thousands of Malaga locals and visitors danced and revelled on the shores of the Mediterranean.

Did you know that…?

On summer afternoons, especially during the Fair, you can find "biznagueros" on the streets of Malaga. They are traditional city characters who sell the popular "biznaga malagueña".

Along with the "Cenachero" and the "boquerón", the "biznaga" is one of the traditional symbols of the city. It comprises a painstakingly arranged bunch of jasmine flowers in the form of a sphere. Besides their exquisite beauty and scent, they are also said to keep away mosquitoes on August nights.

Gold and Silver "Biznagas" are the main prizes awarded at the Malaga Spanish Film Festival.
