Caños Santos Festival. Cañete la Real. September. Unique Festival
This festival has been declared to be of Tourist Interest by the Provincial Council of Málaga.
Please check with the local Town Hall or Municipal Tourism Office for the festival date before planning any sightseeing activities.
In honour of the Virgen de Caños Santos, these festivities are celebrated every year on the third weekend of September. Nevertheless, the ceremonies begin nine days before the festival with the Rosary saying through the streets of the village, and the novena.
This three-day festival offers sports tournaments as well as performances at the caseta (marquee tents) of the Hermandad de la Virgen (The Brotherhood of the Virgin).
The most anticipated acts are the Ofrenda Floral (Floral Offering) on Saturday night—accompanied by the locals singing the Salve Regina—and the Sunday procession.
