Fiesta de La Castaña. - Agenda Ocio Cultural de la Provincia de Málaga y su Costa del Sol.

Fiesta de La Castaña


Pujerra, a small village in the region of Ronda, bordering on Costa del Sol Occidental, boasts chestnut and pine woods that stretch into the Genal Valley. It is an area where nature surprises you at every step. In autumn, the thick chestnut woods are worth contemplating, as they look like the best strokes in an impressionist painting. At this time of year, locals pick the chestnuts, an iconic and basic ingredient in Pujerra’s gastronomy and economy. In early November, when the picking tasks have come to a close, the Chestnut Fair is held, on the occasion of the Virgen de Fátima (the local Patroness) Festival. Locals prepare traditional croutons with mistelle, thus playing tribute to chestnuts as a symbol of the local cuisine. Other chestnut-based dishes are prepared, and they are all made available for visitors to taste.
