OK….Just who is Saint Bernabé?
According to the Biblical legend, Saint Bernabé gave money to the Apostles for them to give to the poor. His original name was Joseph, but the new name given by the Apostles means “he who makes an effort” or “he who encourages others”.

So, the people of Marbella celebrate San Bernabé by way of a weeks long celebration (commonly known as a feria) every year and is a big part of the social and religious calendar and the festivities range from processions, outdoor parties, dance shows, music concerts and of course, some bullfighting.
