Bolnuevo’s annual Fiestas del Milagro takes place between 10th and 19th November to celebrate the miraculous events which saved the town from an attack by Barbary pirates.

There’s a tapas route coinciding with the fiesta, where you will be issued with a passport to be stamped by all nine of the participating establishments. Your passport must be presented at the Carpa Municipal by 15:00 on 19th November in order to be eligible to enter the prize draw taking place later that evening.

Each tapa costs 2,50 euro and includes a glass of beer, wine or a soft drink. Those participating in this year’s tapas route are Rincón de Elías, Lebeche, Torre de Piedra, Café Colonia, Hotel Playa Grande, Capricho, Américo Mediterráneo, Las Gredas and Cafetería Aracelis.
