525th Moors & Christians in Mojacar

Mojacar is celebrating what it delicately calls “the 525th anniversary of the famous encounter between the Arabian and Andalucian cultures in Mojacar”.

No doubt they don’t want to stir the Brits up over the whole Muslim thing. Anyhoooo.

The annual Moors and Christians bash is being held between the 31st of May and the 2nd of June this year. Fiesta, party, ancient market, and, of course, the obligatory marches. All good fun.

Full info and schedule of events available on www.mojacar.es. Sadly, I have plans to be at the Cirencester polo club that weekend, so I shan´t be attending. Have fun and take photos!

NB: The actual procession weekend is the following one. The weekend of the 31-2 june is the Arabian encounters weekend.
