Moors and Christians

At the end of September, the festivals of the Moros & Cristianos take place in Altea. The entire village takes an active part and the atmosphere becomes very festive and exuberant. Religious traditions, such as processions and the sacrifice of flowers to the patron saint, are interspersed with colorful parades. As the Moors and Christians parade through the narrow streets of the village, the past comes back to life. The beautiful costumes and make-up are undoubtedly the eye-catcher of this magnificent event.

Although the festivities of the Moors and Christians are very typical for the entire territory of the Costa Blanca, those of Altea are among the most striking!
