Arte Sano will hold their 2012 festival in San Pedro de Alcantara on the Playa la Salida sea front this weekend.  Starting at 11.00 am and running through to midnight on both days, the festival on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th celebrates and provides a tactile back drop for the alternative aspects of Andalucía.

The colourful event hosts a miscellany of workshops, talks, crafts, natural products, therapists and art and provides a variety of health food for visitors to enjoy. With a dedicated area for children’s activities and entertainment by the equally colourful  LUX Theatre Collective and Grooveland, Arte Sano 2012  is worth a visit.

From a more practical point of view, there are some impressive demonstrations of solar powered cooking (pictured) and other exhibitions focusing on renewable energy, including dehydrators, solar ovens and hydraulic ram pumps as well as a circuit for electric vehicles for visitors to try out.

Entrance is free. For further information and directions visit or call 659 537 525.
