By boat, from La Fica to the Malecon
As a novelty this year, the two emblematic environments of the Fair, La Fica and El Malecón, will be connected by a free cruise. The solar ship will pick up the passengers from the jetty in front of the Molinos del Río and transfer them to La Fica, where a new drop-off point has been enabled. It will also perform the reverse path.
The tourist boat will offer these river tours from 19.30 to midnight, from the 6th to the 16th of September.
