Things to do in Guaro
Guaro is located a mere 5 minutes drive from Monda Castle.
It is a small village but has much to offer including a cultural center “Al Andalus & Ethnographic Museum of Oil” which retains an Arab oil press from the XII century.
The museum highlights the town’s influence as traditional producer of olives from the period of Al-Andalus.
Luna Mora festival
During the month of September, Guaro transforms from a white sleepy village to the place to be for many visitors as they celebrate the festival of the “Luna Mora” (blackberry moon festival).
During this festival the entire village is illuminated in the evening with over 20.000 candles. Also during this time many important Andalusian artists come to perform in the evenings.
La Laguna, La Vinagreta
The village of Guaro is crowned by the Sierra de Alhama where an immense underground lake can be found, one of the largest in Europe.
The lake comes to life when its waters rise to the surface, forming white waterfalls giving birth to the Guaro River, hence this village know as “El Manantial de la Axarquia”.
Another great sight will be the parish church of St. Michael Arcángel.
The temple is located in the center of the old town just a few meters from the city hall and Fountain of San Isidro Labrador
