Jimera de Líbar in the mountains of the Serranía de Ronda is welcoming visitors this weekend to catch a glimpse of the up to 20 species of wild orchids that grow in the municipality.

On Saturday and Sunday (16 and 17 March), the town hall has organised a festival and a host of activities to introduce people to the many different ‘orquídeas’ in the local area. The design of the flowers of the various varieties of orchids is one of the most complex of all known, and the main purpose is to attract insects and achieve pollination.
