Event: Flour Carnival in Alozaina, but you won’t be baking

Alozaína is a town and municipality in the province of Málaga, part of the autonomous community of Andalusia in southern Spain.

This small town hosts an unusual festival where one throws flour, and bags of flour, at neighbors and visitors alike — so beware!
Some get dressed in traditional fancy dresses, a custom that originates from the tradition of how men in the town would cover girls they liked in flour.
If a girl then covered the boy in flour too, “a love had been born”.

Locally known as ‘harineo’, this celebration is another Spanish (excuse?) to party  — why not get a bit messy whilst at it?



This year it takes place for only three days, 21st – 23st of February. So if you’re in town and fancy having some floury fun, you know where to go.
