The Noche de San Juan, which takes place on the 23rd of June, is a night of magic, spirituality and festivities all over Spain. This ancient pagan festival occurs on the summer solstice (the longest day of the year) to welcome in the summer season, and is a night steeped in tradition, rituals and age-old practices.
Marbella and its neighbouring coastal towns, popular with expats, are dotted along the Costa del Sol and stretch for miles, from Málaga in the east all the way to Sotogrande in the west.
It’s out of the box thinking that could put Estepona on the map as a cultural destination in its own right. For while Granada is known for its street graffiti and Bristol is famous for the works of the celebrated artist Banksy, Estepona is hoping to attract a new sort of tourist with some impressive highbrow artwork. Over the past few months a number of large, colourful murals have sprung up in different neighbourhoods around town. Painted on structures often several stories high are works of art that have brought a dash of colour to otherwise everyday buildings.
With its beautiful light and scenery, the Costa del Sol has long been a popular venue with photographers and the makers of television ads, a fact that was illustrated again this year.
