20th December
 Description "Migas" Festival. It has been declared to be of National Tourist Interest in Andalucía. This gastronomical festival attracts more people than any other in the district. Around 40 thousand visitors come every year. From early in the morning a team of cooks start to prepare the "migas" and later they serve them with salad at different places in the village after the start had been announced by blowing the shell, liberally washed down with wine from the barrels that have previously been selected in a competition for local products. The festival is completed with live music and dancing as well as stalls in the streets offering wine, honey, raisins, figs, doughnuts or traditonal "arropía".

Each year in Torrox, Malaga, Andalucia there is a traditional Migas Fiesta, which is of National Tourism Interest in Andalusia.

Torrox prepares to its most typical dish, a plate of “migas” (fried breadcrumbs) and a good glass of wine for all who attend the fiesta.

The ingredients and seasoning used to prepare “migas” make it an ideal dish for people working on the land. When farm labourers were working on the vineyards and olive groves and lunchtime came, the farmer would ring a bell to let them know that the “migas” were ready to eat.

On the Sunday before Christmas, alongside La Almazara Market, “migas” are prepared and distributed to all the local residents and visitors who come to Torrox. The ringing of the bell is the signal for everyone to come and collect their plate of “migas”. A glass of wine and an “arriera” salad (with cod and orange) accompany the meal, which takes place in a wonderful festive atmosphere. Later, the music and dancing continue in Plaza de la Constitución square. 

During the previous weeks there are a range of cultural events and activities, such as the Local Wine Competition and the official presentation of the poster announcing the fiesta. There is no shortage of “verdiales” (type of flamenco) groups, as well as the municipal band and other bands invited to take part in the fiesta.
