Fiesta de la matanza

Fiesta de la Matanza

    All day  
  • 5 Feb 2023

On 5 February, the town of Ardales in Malaga celebrates the Fiesta de la Matanza, a day that commemorates the traditional preparation of embutidos - sausages, and all things porky. The well-known saying: 'del cerdo se aprovecha todo', every part of a pig is used, couldn't be truer at this event. On this day, you'll see how chacinas, a type of pork sausage, was traditionally made, as well as other meaty products. What's more, locals from the area, using typical techniques and original utensils, will make embutidos. There'll be delicious tastings, and in the central town plaza, a huge feast will be prepared for all to enjoy. Put the date in your diary and experience a classic celebration in Ardales.
