This weekend sees the annual Feria in the Los Boliches part of Fuengirola. Carmen is the patron saint of the fishermen.
The weekend will be marked by a fairground in the town, lots of concerts, parties and games on the beach.
On Saturday the statue of Carmen will be brought out of the local church, paraded through the town and let along the beach to the sea.
This will give the fishermen a whole year's good luck.
