Alicante Moors and Christians

The flags and hangings decorate the balconies and the fabrics.
Weapons, costumes and decorations are taken out, after been kept for one year since the last celebration of Moors and Christians, fiestas.

This celebration takes place under an explosion of colour and fireworks ambience.
The Moors and Christians fiesta celebrated in Alcoy is dated from the 13th century, when the town, that thirty years before had be reconquered for the Kingdom of Valencia by King don Jaime, was attacked by the Moslems. Thanks to the participation of Saint George, what would have been a defeat became a victory for the Christians. Dates: 22nd -24th April.
