It’s almost the most festive period of the year again in Moraira! No, clearly not Christmas, but the festival of “Moors and Christians”.

It is the commemoration of the battles fought between ‘los Moros’ and ‘los Cristianos’. After about 780 years of Moorish rule the Christians reconquered Spain during the ‘Reconquista’,  ending in the 15th century.

This old Spanish tradition goes back more than four centuries and offers a magic spectacle with parades, religious processions, extraordinary costumes and a lot of music!

It’s a celebration of the Spanish heritage where all members of the community are united.

But most of all, it is a party where everybody is welcome to join in. Have a look at the programme here, and come to Moraira and experience the folklore and festive spirit of Spain!
