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. One of the highlights is the parade through the city centre on 6th December in celebration of the patron saint of Alicante, San Nicolás.
