Vélez-Málaga. Feasts & Festivals. Axarquía-Costa del Sol Tourist Guide
The visitor will find in this guide two main types of celebrations:
Provincial Tourist Feast
These are popular feasts and events that are celebrated in towns throughout the district and which are interesting for tourists; as a result they have been highlighted by the Malaga Provincial Government. The aim of this recognition is to highlight the popular festivities that exist and that are deeply rooted in popular traditions and therefore promote and disseminate Malaga’s unique tourist attractions.
Other Feasts of interest for Tourists
These are very popular feasts in the district, with celebrations that include festivities, pilgrimages, fairs and cultural meetings. These festivities highlight the essential aspects of the Axarquia’s traditions.
Some of these celebrations are distinctly gastronomic in nature and can be identified by a symbol that represents a knife and fork. This sign leads us to a recipe that includes that feast’s star product.
