Albanchez

   

A few years ago a group of young people from Albanchez resurrected the traditional presentations of the soldiery, squads of Moors and Christians that face off against each other in the streets of the towns, acting out texts that date back to the seventeenth century.

Thus travellers that come upon this marble-producing region have the chance to witness those pirate assaults by Berbers assisted by Moors that the almería coast suffered during the entire seventeenth century and that kept the sparse Christian population on the alert. Before leaving Albanchez visit the hermitage of San Roque, the Caños fountain and the Encarnacion parochial church, which magnificently combines the Mudejar style of its exterior, the baroque of its interior plasters and its neoclassic main altarpiece.
