Totalan Picture

This small mountain of this village of Malaga is in itself part of the countryside. Its surroundings, the white houses and the steep, narrow streets are quaint and endearing to visitors. The parochial church dates from the end of the 17th century; its tower is whitewashed and ends in a four-sided roof. Recently a chambered tomb has been discovered – La Tumba del Morro – which is similar to that of Antequera.

On the Saturday before Palm Sunday, there is normally a flamenco festival. Until a few years ago the tradition of las parrandas existed, consisting of groups of young men with string instruments serenading the young girls of the village, although sadly this can no longer be seen.

The typical dishes are cazuela de arroz (a type of risotto), potaje de lentajas (lentil stew), puchero con garbanzos y habichuelas (chickpea and kidney bean hotpot). In summer cold gazpacho is served as dessert.
