IMG 5435One thing that Spain does well is tradition and this weekend (4-7 May) Benidorm has gone back in time to be transformed into the Middle Ages with the arrival of a travelling Medieval Market, attracting plenty of visitors to Parc d’Elx (Dove Park) at the start of the Poniente beach.

IMG 5431It goes to many towns across the region and only last weekend in took place in Vilajoyosa. The 4-day event combines history, culture and fun and definitely worth making an effort to go to. It is set out along the promenade and the parallel road has been closed off to traffic, decorated with flags, banners and bunting.

IMG 5437There are around 50 stalls, displaying some wonderful handmade items, with a number even demonstrating their craft such as glass blowing and carpentry. You will find a variety of products on sale such as jewellry, handmade soaps, leather goods, dried fruits, teas, ceramics etc  

IMG 5434A delicious smelling food court is also set up, the star of which is a massive bbq, with a selection of meats, sausages and peppers – which includes a spit roast pig (vegans and vegetarians give it a wide berth). All the stallholders throughout the market are dressed in traditional medieval costumes to add to the atmosphere and there are street entertainers walking around, interacting with the crowds.
