In March there is a Dia de la Sopa Mondena (Day of Monda Soup) where soup is prepared for the whole village.
If you are lucky enough to be here in September, the neighbouring village of Guaro has a candlelit festival called Luna Mora (Moroccan Moon) where for two weekends the whole village is lit by thousands of candles and there is an outside market selling Moroccan food and jewellery etc.
