Set in a valley alongside the Ronda mountains about 50 kilometres north east of Ronda is the small village of Ardales. Every year the village celebrates the pig slaughter, the ‘matanza’ with a festival that shows off the best pork products of the region. You can sample morcon, chorizos and morcilla and a portion of a local delicacy, pork in a sauce. There is also a small food market in the town square.
The 22nd Fiesta de la Matanza will be on Sunday the 4th February 2018.
