Moors and Christians in Villafranqueza

Moors and Christians in Villafranqueza

The Moors and Christians arrive in Villafranqueza in the month of March; this is when the castle is set up, the lights are switched on and the grand opening is proclaimed. A very full programme of festive acts includes dancing, "paellas", fire-crackers, the pealing of the bells, evening dining, reveilles, street parades, the firing of blunderbusses, games, processions, flower-offerings and both acoustic and visual firework displays.
