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.

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.

News Snippets

    The last Ford Mondeo is expected to roll off the production line by 2020. The popular family car was launched in 1993 and was the epitome of the middle classes - with nearly 130K sold in the first year. Last year only 55K were sold across the whole of Europe hence the decision to stop production. But Ford takes the top slot for the UK's best selling car - with the Fiesta and in 4th place, the Focus model.

    A shortage of food grade CO2 has led to some supermarkets rationing sales of fizzy drinks, beer and cider. Even bakery chain Warburtons has been forced to stop making crumpets and pubs across the the UK have run out of several brands of draught beer and cider... not good during the World Cup!
  • More store closures +

    The face of the UK High Street is changing in the wake of the economic slowdown. M&S, House of Fraser, Carpetright, Mothercare and New Look are all closing branches. Now John Lewis have announced that 5 Waitrose food stores are set to close - affecting more than 200 staff.
