Fiesta de San Miguel

The patrón saint of Istán (Málaga) is San Miguel for whom a week long of celebrations takes place in his honor.

Istán is located within Malaga province, inland from the world famous town of Marbella, near the hunting preserve of Serranía de Ronda and within the Sierra Blanca area. This pueblo has the distinction of also being located in the Rio Verde valley where its pure, untreated mountain waters are considered to be healthy and of great benefit; hence it is common to see people filling their own water bottles. Yet this mountain village, typical of many in Andalucia, is best traversed on foot or by mule as the roads are narrow, winding and sometimes precarious.

The town´s fiestas patronales lasts for approximately a week during which time the main plaza is converted into a center of merriment. The local band plays every day as it traverses the town´s streets; there are competitions, games, lots of fanfare and music, and a reigning king and queen. To enjoy a typical Andalucian town event, one should plan to be in Istán for these fiestas.
