Fiestas de moros y cristianos - Moors and Christians Fiesta
Parades and a great deal of fun are the keynotes of this unique Spanish fiesta.
During the first week in February, Bocairent, in the province of Valencia, celebrates its Moors and Christians festivity in honour of Saint Blas, patron of the town. This particular Moors and Christians fiesta is one of the oldest and best in Spain. Fireworks, paso doble music and bands, spectacular parades, processions and the deafening sound of gunpowder are the main ingredients of this colourful six-day fiesta. The highlight is the Entrà, when over 2,000 people participate in an amazing parade of floats.
