Marbella Fair

As it does every year, Marbella pays homage to its patron saint, San Bernabé, on 11th June, which means all kinds of fun and entertainment.

The Feria de San Bernabé is Marbella’s biggest celebration. Along with the Virgen del Carmen Festival, San Bernabé Day is one of the most important dates in the city’s calendar.

Come to Marbella to enjoy the sun, the beach and the “espetos”.

21 espeto

The “espetos”is a typical dish from Malaga made by skewering sardines on long pieces of cane and then grilling them over a wood fire right on the sand. It’s an intrinsic part of any self-respecting “moraga”.

A moraga is a party on the beach starting at nightfall and carrying on right into the early hours of the morning.

But don’t worry if you haven’t been invited to a moraga; you can eat these delicious sardines in the chiringitos and local restaurants.

The art of the espeto is beyond the capabilities of most people. There’s a special technique handed down from generation to generation. Special care must be taken when skewering the sardines to make sure that the spine is always underneath the cane, so that the fish doesn’t fall off when the cane is turned.

Although espetos are traditionally made using sardines, nowadays other fish such as horse mackerel, gilthead bream, sea bass and molluscs such as calamari are also cooked this way.

And as we say around here… the best months for eating sardines are those without an “R” in them: May, June, July and August

Bon appetit!
