 The free activity 'A heritage of cinema', made by the Ministry of Finance and Public Administrations, returns to the Port of Mazarrón and can be visited on Thursday 3 and Friday 4 August from 8pm-12am on the Paseo Maritimo

After the success of the Gala Flamenca to the public last Saturday, the Paseo de la Sal hosts another event. 

The second edition of the Theatre Festival "Rafael García Castillo" takes place. 

The show is open air and free.

 In 2016 the approximate presence of more than 2,200 people was counted.

Thursday, July 13, "Colón" amateur group UGTeatro performs and on Friday, July 14, the festival moves to the beach of Bahia Chica to enjoy this place as a natural setting where Grupo Itinerante Deletreartes de la Universidad de Murcia  will interpret a dramatized reading of Ovidios work "Heroidas".

This festival, organized by the Universidad Popular de Mazarrón  in collaboration with the City Council, is named after Rafael Garcia Castillo in homage to a Mazarronero, a doctor by profession, who has altruistically promoted Theatre in the Municipality for more than two decades.


The Department of Tourism and Environment of Moratalla Town Hall and "Discovering Moratalla", are pleased to invite you to a new edition of "Pure Essence". This year, with a subtitle, "Folclore Vivo" announces our intention to share the day with la Cuadrilla de Animeros del Campo de San Juan, El Sabinar y Calar de La Santa which celebrate its XXVII Meeting of Cuadrillas on 29 July 2017, where they will also present their new album, "Nuestra Música", coinciding happily with our event in honour of the aromatic highland of the Municipality of Moratalla. We will live a day enjoying our fields, the cultivation and distillation of essences and ancestral sounds that influenced the spirit of past and present societies ... Through instruments, voices and dances,

But first, to open the day, we will approach the fields of Lavandin, Salvia and Espliego that by this time stain our beloved Campo de San Juan, and we will see it live as its essence is distilled. Small corners full of beauty and fragrance, in which tradition becomes a show for the senses. But not everything is beautiful ... to extract the precious essence, the people of Campo de San Juan, Sabinar and Calar de La Santa, work hard, almost artisanal, paying with sweat the essential oil that plants give before such a hard effort.

On this occasion, it is not an excursion, since the dates and the heat advise ... we will walk a little, but we will be able to see up close the process of transformation of this beautiful aroma in delicate essence.

After our visit to the crops and one of the boilers that work in our area, and to freshen up, we will see the rock art exhibition of the Region of Murcia that is installed inside the dam of La Risca , Courtesy of the Hydrographic Confederation of Segura.

To finish the day, all those who so desire, can accompany us at "Restaurant The Cortijo".

In the afternoon, before the beginning of the "Meeting of Cuadrillas", and after dinner we will look for the best snapshots of dusk in the area . After enjoying music and dancing, this intense day will close a unique experience: nocturnal photography of the fields of Lavandin, waiting for our skies to allow us, until the body can endure ...
