Elche vive su Fiesta Mayor: El Misteri

La Festa, as this Medieval play is also known, is performed in August every year in the Basilica of Santa María in Elche, coinciding with the festivity of the Virgin of the Assumption.

It is one of the most precious gems of Valencia's heritage, and was declared a National Monument in 1931. In 2001 it was included in the first UNESCO Declaration of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
