In terms of fiestas and cultural traditions, there are plenty of dates to keep in mind for Torrox. As with the rest of the villages in Axarquía, of particular interest are the traditional festivities for Easter Week.
This is traditionally celebrated on the last Sunday before Christmas during the festivities for the Virgin. It includes the “quema de los júas” (puppet burning ceremony), during which people from the village wet their faces in the village fountain and make three wishes.
