In July, the town of Orihuela, in the province of Alicante, celebrates the Re-conquest fiesta, commemorating the arrival of Christian troops in the 13th century, and their triumph over the Saracens. At the festivities there are plenty of “Moors and Christians” parades, filling the town with colour, spectacle, joy and music. We visit for the Moorish Procession. The Moorish costumes are the most impressive – dramatic make-up completes the spectacle. A fun night not to be missed.
Processions start at 21.30h – this is subject to change and final confirmation by the tourist information office.
Finish times still to be confirmed.
