Medieval Market Almuñecar Spain

With our long weekend we had plenty of time to enjoy the sun and get outdoors.  Just down the beach from us was a Medieval Market all weekend from 11am-11pm.  It was small, but very cute. We went several times. It was fun just hearing the music and being around all of the people. We felt like locals when we ran into several people we knew this weekend.  It feels good to get out and mingle. We were absolutely fascinated with the Owl (búho) and other birds at the corner stall.

We also walked back in the evening to see if the Christmas decorations in Old Town were complete. As of Friday night there weren’t lit, but they were on Saturday. Unfortunately none of the night pictures came out well.  We managed to get a few day shots here and there. It was a fantastic weekend full of exploration.  Alan is writing up the post from our day on Sunday and that will be published soon as well.

  1. Well, I think your night photos came out perfectly beautiful! It’s smaller than the Christmas markets here in Malaga, but very similar. If I ever get around to it (probably won’t, I never post anything!) I might put up some pics of the markets here too. Did you buy anything?

    • Too funny! Yes, there have been a few “chilly” days of about 50’F here. That day was only chilly in the morning and then turned out to be nice. I was wishing I had shorts on after a while. For once we weren’t getting glares and stares from every direction. We bumped into so many people we knew and had great chats with tourists as well, so I suppose long pants didn’t scare them away. Actually, wearing shorts turns out to be quite the conversation piece with locals asking us if we are crazy. Not sure if it is how we should start of, but it gets us talking.

      I did think of you as we were walking through the market. I was thinking you would enjoy the music and the “earthiness” of the people. It was great.

Come on and tell us what you think!
