Feast of Our Lady of Candelaria

Every year, on the first Sunday of February, Colmenar pays tribute to its Patroness, Our Lady of Candelaria, and its patron saint, St Blaise. Legend has it that an image of La Candelaria came to town as a token of gratitude, brought by some sailors. Since then, She has been in Her shrine, built in the Baroque style in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

On Sunday, there is a procession along the main streets leading to the shrine in the upper part of town, coming to an end with a firework show.

Road Directions

Unless you happen to be in the northern part of the province the best route is to leave the city of Málaga by the A-6103, popularly known as the Carretera de Colmenar (Colmenar Road). This is the old and formerly the only way to get to the interior of Andalusia (Seville, Córdoba, Granada) and the rest of Spain. The road is an unbroken succession of curves but it is worth it for the view it provides of the bay and mountains of Málaga. Another possibility is to take the expressway towards Antequera (N-331) and once you have passed Casabermeja to turn onto the A-356. The scenery is very beautiful here also, especially after leaving the expressway, but it is another type of landscape.
