Moros y Cristianos – Traditions

The festival of Moors and Christians has become one of the most representatives of the social life of Alicante, making it an attractive mixture of religiosity, strict label and controlled street festival. That is the case of San Blas, Villafranqueza, Altozano and José Antonio, where the streets are occupied by neighbors and friends willing to spend a few days of joy shared between music, parades and gunpowder.

Friendship is an essential component of this celebration. Without that spirit the party would not exist. In quarters and kábilas almost everything is shared, where the food and the drink brings everyone together.
