Moors and Christians

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. 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.
