Moors and Christians Festivals

These are the Province of Alicante’s most important festivals and are held in five different areas of the city on different dates. It is a spectacular reenactment of the Province’s recapture from Moorish hands.

These fiestas are celebrated in different neighbourhoods of the city throughout the year. They commemorate, in a festive style, the battles fought between Christians and Muslims back in the 13th century to reconquer the lands of the province. Some of the city’s neighbourhoods dedicate a few days to this festival.

One of the highlights is the procession through the city centre on the 6th December in celebration of Alicante’s patron saint, Saint Nicolas. It’s a fantastic opportunity to witness one of the east coast of Spain’s most popular traditions.
