Moors and Christians of Bocairent

From 22€
History, Festival, Bocairent Saturday 04/02/23

The Moors and Christians festival is one of the most genuine celebrations within the wide and rich compendium of festive celebrations with deep roots and tradition throughout Spain. Since 1980, it has been declared an International Tourist Interest.  The festivals last for several days and feature festive parades with bombastic costumes loosely inspired by Medieval fashion. Christians wear fur, metallic helmets, and armor, fire loud arquebuses, and ride horses. In contrast, Moors wear ancient Arab costumes, carry scimitars, and ride real camels. The festival develops among shots of gunpowder medieval music, and fireworks, and ends with the Christians winning a simulated battle around a castle. We will go back in time together to the year 1276!

Parades and lots of fun make up these unique parties. The first week of February, Bocairent, in Valencia, celebrates its Moors and Christians festival in honor of its patron saint, San Blas. It is one of the oldest and most unique Moors and Christians festivities. If you do not know how to spend the first week of February and would like to see fireworks, music from pasodobles and comparsas, impressive parades, processions and the thunderous sound of gunpowder characterize this colorful and showy celebration, then come and join us!
