Moros y Cristianos Festival

Alcoy Town
30 miles North of Alicante

Over 150 Moors and Christians festivals take place every year in Spain to celebrate the battle of Alcoy, 1275. In this epic battle, St George helped defeat the Moorish armies led by Al Azraq.

The Moros y Cristianos festival which takes place in Alcoy near Alicante is the biggest of them all and the one to attend if you can. Here you can witness giant re-enactments of the battles between 28 costumed armies fighting in the streets. The fiesta is the jewel in Alicante's festival crown - even outdoing Semana Santa - Holy Week.
