Festival Luna Mora in Guaro 6 and 7 / 13 and 14 September

luna mora guaro 2013This weekend kicks off the 17th edition of the Festival de la Luna Mora in a small village in Sierra de las Nieves, 22 km north of Marbella. Who wants to get away from the coast and live another kind of experience, can enjoy during two weekends in September the opportunity to discover beautiful roads leading inland through the Sierra de las Nieves, declared a Biosphere Reserve, to the village of Guaro.

Each year this town pays tribute to the legacy of Al-Andalus evoking in the streets the magic and culture of a bygone era with a Moorish market, only lit with thousands of candles.

In such an environment you´ll find not only artisans and rich cuisine but concerts, storytelling, parades and much more under the night sky and the flickering light of the candles.
