Paseo de la Música
Created last year after the first Benidorm Fest was held, Paseo de la Música is a tribute to the musicians and artists who have triumphed first at the Benidorm International Song Festival and now at the Benidorm Fest; and, by extension, it is also a testimony at street level of the close link between Benidorm and music.
Along with the monolith of the golden microphone, the Benidorm Fest prize, Paseo de la Música has another dedicated to the Benidorm International Song Festival, in which all the winners of the legendary contest are reviewed, including Julio Iglesias and Raphael. A monolith that is crowned by a golden mermaid, the same one that for decades was given to the winners of Benidorm Festival.
