7th and 18th September
Peniscola, Valencia
 



Peñíscola a beautiful little town on the coast just north of Valencia, Spain celebrates the Festivities in honour of the Virgin of la Ermitana every September.

 There are always a large number of activities, including concerts and traditional parades of Moors and Christians.
Local people will elect the homecoming queen and her court of honour, the magnificent fireworks, traditional dances and “la soltá” of heifers. Year after year, exhibitions and contests, many liturgical ceremonies as well as a large number of competitions that give a good account of the importance of this Festivity of National Tourist Interest.
 The most outstanding element of these fiestas are the danses, traditional dances that are the pinnacle of the town’s devotion to its patron saint. These are age-old dances that evoke the village’s warrior and peasant traditions. The spectacle comes to a close with the castell, a human tower. On the final days of the fiesta you can see the “Moors and Christians” parades, filling the streets of Peñiscola with colour.

Fireworks, open-air dances, concerts, contests, sporting competitions, bullfights and running of young bulls, street entertainment with brass bands, and a range of religious acts make up the rest of the activities of these deep-rooted village festivities.
