Mediaeval Roots

As the self-styled “Almond Paradise”, Guaro leaves little doubt about what it sees as its main asset. Located deep within Guadalhorce Valley, the municipality is covered in almond plantations (plus olive groves) that not only provide the locals with their main source of collective income but also give the village a modern sense of identity to appeal to tourists who are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a “typical Andalucian pueblo” to visit.

Moorish Moon festival commemorating village’s mediaeval history

Then there is the Festival de la Luna Mora (Moorish Moon). Held in September, the event commemorates the village’s mediaeval history, Andalus culture, and Christian, Moorish and Sephardic religious roots. With 25,000 candles spectacularly illuminating the town, visitors are treated to pastries, green tea, centuries-old music and a bazaar in the main square selling artisanal products.

Convivial Village Welcome

At other times of the year, tourists can mingle with the town’s 2,000 residents and check out such intriguing sites of historical interest as the 16th century Saint Michael parish church; while beyond the village are several excellent hiking trails. If you have the time, a drive into the mountains takes you deep into semi-wilderness territory – ideal for those wanting to truly get away from it all.

Apart from festival week, not much happens in Guaro in the evenings, apart from the customarily pleasant village staples of inexpensive wining and dining, convivial local company and listening to the soothing soundtrack of distance wildlife in the surrounding valleys.
