Festivities of Moors and Christians in Mutxamel
7th to 13th September
 
 

Every September Mutxamel  on the outskirts of Alicante dresses in its best to welcome the Moorish and Christian festival. This festival features the 'drunkards day!'

Featured are the colourful parades through the streets as well as music to accompany the groups. Mascletás, processions, humorous parades and festivals flood every corner of this beautiful city of Alicante. Over the next few days, Mutxamel only breathes joy thanks to the Festivities of Moors and Christians in honour of the Virgin of Loreto, celebrations declared of Provincial Tourist Interest.
