Open air museum in the Gardens of the Vizier

In the mountains of Málaga, 45 Kms from Ronda lies the town of Genalguacil. This small town traces its origins to when the Moors ruled over this part of Spain and it´s name comes from the Arab "Genna-Alwacir" or Gardens of the Vizier.
The town would be just another of the charming white Andalusian villages scattered along this mountain range where it not for the Genalguacil Arts Festival that takes place here from the 1st to the 14th of August, every two years. This year (2012) will see another edition of the festival, when artists from all over the world will descend on the town to work on a piece of art that they will donate to the town. If you are going to Malaga it is worth a visit.
