DIA DE LA TRILLA - 14th July

The Town Hall and good people of Sedella are proud to present the first "Dia de la Trilla" on the 14th July.

Things kick off at 12am. What on earth is that you may ask? Fiesta of what?!

Also, on offer is the opportunity to sample local dishes and goodies on offer from local companies based in the Axarquia at a small mercadillo.
