Feslalí 2022 - 6th Edition

In this 6th Feslalí's Edition we reinvent ourselves. We can no longer see the Vie en Rose, the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa has taken care of this, killing many of the village's almond trees, but we resist, despite COVID'19 and Xylella, we are ready to continue offering the best of Alcalalí. Of course, with less flowers but with the same enthusiasm as always.

We have prepared various activities such as an urban exhibition to dress the village with flowers and discover the charm of its streets, 5 themed routes with different difficulty in order you choose the best to you, an exhibition of poetic look around the almond trees, by the local artist Laura López Chesa, and of course, enjoy the Medieval Tower and its panoramics valley's view and the village.

Whether as a couple, friends or family, we look forward to seeing you at Feslalí from 5 to 20 February!
