Maro Feria / Feria de las Maravillas

The Feria in Maro, the Feria de las Maravillas, is a very different event compared to the relatively large Feria that you’ll find in Nerja a month or so later. Maro is a small village and as a result its feria is a far more local affair. You’ll really be able to see and feel the rural roots of the area with people from the village parading their horses, enjoying music and games but with far smaller crowds compared to other, larger celebrations found in Andalusia.
