Plaza de la Constitucion, Fuengirola at Christmas

The Plaza de la Constitucion in Fuengirola is really the heart of the town. The pretty square with the striking white church at its centre is popular with locals and tourists alike, and it really comes alive at Christmas though with the arrival of the Christmas market.

Fuengirola’s Christmas market may not be the biggest or the best you will find in Europe but it has a lovely family-friendly atmosphere and enough of the cottage-like huts selling unique gifts, food and drink to keep you occupied.
