Caravaca de la Cruz

 
The purpose of this pilgrimage is to bless the fields.

 

Another brilliant festival in Spain where all the locals join in to create a wonderful fiesta for all the family. Dedicated to the local farming community to bless the fields and a good harvest the fiestas dates back to medieval times and is mix of culture, history and legend. 
 

 

This special event in Spain features two main spectacles: the Wine Horses, and the Moors and Christians celebrations. 

On the first day, floral offerings are made at the Castle-Sanctuary. The following day starts with a reveille to the sound of bells and plenty of gunpowder. It continues with the spectacular processions that run through the town: the Moors and Christians, and the Wine Horses, the animals richly saddled, which finishes with a race up the hill to the Castle. On 3rd May the Ba˝o de la Cruz is celebrated in the Baroque shrine, commemorating the miracle that occurred in 1384, when these blessed waters brought an end to a plague of locusts. Parades, processions and a range of firework displays complete the programme for the fiestas.
