This celebration is held to commemorate the victory of the locals against the Moorish invaders that took place on May 11, 1561.

It is a 2-part fiesta beginning in the port. The locals dress up as Moors and Christians and the Moors come in on boats and have a “fight” on the beach.

Later in the day it then moves to the square where the locals finally defeat the Moors in an incredible “battle” – Its a lot of fun to watch but don’t forget your ear plugs because it is very, very loud!!

This is one fiesta you must see at least once!
