2018 Migas Fiesta in Torrox.
Come and join in Torrox Pueblo’s most important fiesta of the year! Traditionally held just before Christmas, this year marks the 37th edition of this popular Migas fiesta, which attracts around 40,000 visitors every year!
The Fiesta celebrates the local dish of ‘Migas’, a simple dish, made from semolina flour, garlic and salt. This recipe was originally made for farmers and labourers to fill them during their hard work on the land.
The Migas is made in large pans and served to eager crowds, along with an Arriera Salad, (made with orange, tomatoes, cod, olives, onions, and a cup of the local ‘Torrox’ Muscatel sweet wine).
This year some 1300 kilos of flour, 500 litres oil, 65 kilos garlic and 40 of salt have been ordered in to make the Migas; as well as 185 kilos of oranges, 900 kilos of tomatoes, 180 kilos onions, 100 kilos of cod and another 100 kilos of olives to make the salad. Best of all, there will be 1600 litres of the local wine ‘Vino de Terreno’ served! The wine used is chosen by a competition held earlier in December.
They will also be serving a gluten-free option of the Migas recipe.
Entertainment is provided on the stage in the main square, with traditional Andalucian music and dancing which starts around midday. There will also be the presentation to the winner of the photography competition ‘I love the Axarquia.’
There is also a craft fair which opens around 11:30 am.
