Welcome to The Arts Society Costa del Sol

The Arts Society Costa del Sol – formerly Costa del Sol Decorative and Fine Arts Society (Dfas) –  was established in 1988, the first Society of its kind in Spain. We are one of more than 385 Local Societies worldwide that are members of The Arts Society. Our objective is to further the enjoyment, knowledge and awareness of the Arts internationally and to stimulate interest in cultural heritage in Spain. Our society is friendly, active and thriving with our members representing 15 nationalities and who are passionate about the Arts in all its expressions.

Each year we hold a series of Lectures and Extra Lectures from October through to May covering a wide range of artistic and cultural interests. These lectures are given in English by accredited speakers from the UK. We also arrange many popular social events for our members and organise cultural travel in Spain and abroad. Being a member is a not just a great way to learn, it’s a way of meeting likeminded people and making new friends. We welcome Visitors.

The Salon Varietés Theatre in Fuengirola is the venue for our main lectures on the second Monday of the month and we meet in the Danish Club on the road to Mijas Pueblo for extra lectures 4-5 times per season. View Venues …
