Benidorm
 Moors and Christians Festival
28th September 2013 to 9th October 2013
The battles between the Moors and the Christians are re-enacted every throughout most of Spain to remember the days when the Christian Kings retook their lands from the invading Moors of Africa. These fiestas are great entertainment and perhaps the best sights to see in Spain.  In Benidorm these battles take place between 3rd to 7th October, the Moors and Christians Festival of Benidorm with explosions to set the heart racing, smoke, colour and spectacle fill the streets of this city with the typical Moorish and Christian parades, and the colourful attire of the participants. In Benidorm like the rest of Spain these fiestas are amongst the most flamboyant fiestas of the year: The Moors and Christians Fiesta in Benidorm (Moros y Cristianos). The Moors and Christians Fiestas are celebrated throughout Spain, but mainly in coastal towns where they celebrate ousting the Moors from each individual town.
A large Castle is built in the Plaza De Hispanidad, in the Old Town from here the Christians will fire fireworks at the bearded Moors and the battle begins.
