The night market "Les Nits del Castell" up at the Mirador in Benidorm Old Town has started - and will be on until the 15th September. The Mirador is home to probably the most spectacular view of Benidorm - you can see both the Levante and Poniente bays from there. It is a very popular tourist spot and a great place for an evening stroll - with plenty of bars to enjoy a drink while taking in the view, not forgetting nearby Tapas Alley!
You will find plenty of stalls to browse with a selection of handcrafted items such as jewellry, leather goods and ceramics - all locally made. There is also a stall run by the local handicapped association, with items made by the members, as well as artists who will sketch you up a caricature to take home in no time! Some can even reproduce spectacular portraits from photographs, which would make a perfect gift to take home.
In addition, this coming weekend - Friday 10th until Sunday 12th July, the town of La Nucia will be holding its annual Medieval market in the streets around the church and Town Hall.
Starting on Friday the old town will be transformed into a bustling market of the middle ages. There will be over 70 stalls selling a variety of products and demonstrating ancient arts and crafts, with most of the stall holders dressed in medieval costumes to make the fair more authentic. You will be able to see food being made in medieval tradition – and even sampling some, watch a blacksmith make artistic pieces alongside stalls selling aromatic medicinal herbs and hand crafted leather pieces.
There will also be street entertainment, singing, dancing and magic displays in addition to horse & pony rides, which should keep all ages happy and amused.A bbq with spit roast and other medieval style food will be on sale for hungry visitors.
The market will be open from 6pm until well after midnight on Friday 10th, Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th – with free parking available at the Plaza de les Nits nearby.
