As Visit Benidorm has just released the official programme of events for the Fiestas Mayores Patronales 2019, I thought it would be helpful to translate it all into English so that those who don’t speak Spanish have access to the official programme of where to go, what time to be there and what to expect.
If you want to see the official programme of events in Spanish, you can go to visitbenidorm.es where you will be able to download the programme in Spanish. If however, you’re looking for the Benidorm November Fiestas Programme for 2019 in England, you’ve come to the right place.
Please do not copy the blog post on to your own site as it has been translated by myself, if you do want to share it with your group or on to your site, please copy the original link or share a link to this article on your site.
