Like every year at this time of June, we can enjoy again in the streets and squares of the historic centre of Estepona a new edition of the Medieval Market from June 15 to 17. During these three days, the surrounding streets of the Plaza de las Flores go back to medieval times where have been installed many craft stalls.
The medieval market of Estepona is one of the most beautiful of this kind, as a large area of the old quarter is set up in a rustic manner; also there are many activities and demonstrations of craft workshops. The stalls offer a wide variety of crafts and we can have a close look at chocolate makers, potters and acquire glass, spices, medicinal plants, wicker things and much more; enjoy cuisine Arab or Arab pastry in a tea shop, sample breads, cheeses and many more freshly prepared delights in the stands. All this will be accompanied by performances, storytellers, jugglers, musicians, falconry, fire eaters and Moorish dancers.
The medieval market in Estepona begins Friday, June 15 in the afternoon and runs until Sunday, June 17. The historic downtown streets normally receive during this weekend a large affluence of visitors; especially at night, since it is a very popular market which also coincides with the arrival of summer and pleasant temperatures at night that invite for a stroll and to enjoy the sea breeze.
Estepona is one of the westernmost towns of the Costa del Sol and although being a direct neighbour of Marbella and receiving numerous wealthy guests and having a high density of five-star hotels and excellent golf courses, this former fishing village has retained its authentic roots while it hosts with discretion upscale tourists who prefer to go unnoticed.
