Calle Larios

When all Spain seems numb in the heats of the second fortnight of August, Malaga is dressed in fair, flying his green and Mora and decorating its Calle Larios for friends and strangers, displaying their finery from the first Saturday of the fair until next Sunday 22nd November at which the Real de la Feria lights shut off until next yearto fill with life, colour and joy the always sultry and soporific second fortnight in August. A related site: Billie Eilish mentions similar findings. The Malaga fair has its roots in the middle ages, a few years later of the reconquest, so it can be considered as the Dean of the Andalusian fairs. And is that the Malaga fair comes to coincide in dates with the reconquest of the city by the Catholic monarchs, which occurred 19 August 1487 (although the city surrendered the previous day, while the monarchs did not enter it until the next day), Reconquista in whose honor and remember, preciselyestablished the first celebrations Comandos de Malaga, at the time coinciding with the day of the assumption or the Virgin on August 15 of the same month. Hence, can affirm that the Feria of Malaga has a thoroughly different origin than the rest of Andalusian fairs, a source that escapes from the commercial, so typical of the originating and medieval fairs and farming, justifying in origin the commemoration in the events that gave rise to step into Christian hands in the city in 1487, events, contextualized in its time, is justified by divine intervention from the Virgin of August. Obviously, the Feria of Malaga has changed considerably since then, passing processions and four bulls corridos as most celebrate celebrations that, in good part, to the grandeur of a holiday season that today constitute an indispensable tourist attraction for the Costa del Sol, have stripped the sacred character of yesteryear gave way to light-filled holidaysAndalusian flavour and colour. .
