entranceBenidorm’s annual ‘Medieval Market’ located along Dove Park at the beginning of the Poniente beach in the Old Town is open and will remain so until Sunday night – May 13. Throughout the 3 days there will be processions, demonstrations and entertainment, plus many of the stallholders are dressed in period costumes to add to the authenticity.


marble cutterYou can even watch craftsmen at work, carving wood, chipping stone, baking bread and cutting leather. The stalls have a varied selection of handcrafted goods such as soaps, jewelry, leather goods, clothing, toys and trinkets in addition to many food stalls with hams, cheese, bread, herbs & spices and dried fruits and nuts.


sweetsFor those that are hungry, there is also a bbq with a delicious selection of ribs, sausages and sucking pigs rotating on a spit, all served with big hunks of bread and pickles as well as a gigantic paella on the go – which was enticing a lot of people.


cushionsThe market is open until Sunday evening and certainly worth a visit to see something different, which you probably wouldn’t experience back home… but closes between 2-5pm for lunch. It’s a lovely way to spend an evening, browsing around and afterwards, enjoying a drink.


dream catchersFor those unsure where it is, Dove Park is located at the end of the ‘walking street’ – Passeo de la Carretera but ask anyone and they will point you in the right direction.The Poniente side is a lot quieter than the vibrant Levante side and where most of the Spanish holiday when they come to Benidorm.

    Geordie lass Scarlett Moffatt has landed a plum role - broadcasting live hourly coverage of the royal wedding from Windsor Castle on May 19. However, it will be for BBC Radio 1 rather than on the television - where she found fame, firstly on Channel 4's Googlebox then on reality show I'm A Celebrity, which she won.... the girl done good.
