If you missed the Fiesta del Naranjo in Melegís, you’re still in time for the XXVI Fair of Tourism, Crafts and Gastronomy ‘Hecho en la Alpujarra.
This Alpujarra event, which will take place between the 6th and 9th of this month in Órgiva, is the 26th one, explained the Mayor of Órgiva, Raúl Orellana. It is expected to attract around 30,000 visitors, beating last year’s figure, he said.
The idea behind the fair, which will be houses within marquees, erected on the municipal parking area, is to promote local businesses, local culture and increase tourism in the county.
Just some of the goodies that you will find at the fair are: Serrano hamcheese, sweet meats, cured meats, chocolate, olive oil and honey.
There will be handicraft objects made from clay, esparto grass, metal, leather and wood, as well.
Other activities are free, guided tours around cultural monuments and along established walks (Órgiva-Bayacas-Órgiva), on Friday the 7th. Then on Saturday, there will be sampling of typical, Alpujarra sausage, Alpujarreño Serrano ham and chocolate!
So, there’s plenty to do and see in Órgiva, from Thursday to Sunday! It’s also a good opportunity to take a break from the crowded coast this Easter.
