Visit Alicante During...
April: Fiesta de Moros y Cristianos
The Moors and Christians Festival celebrates Saint George, Alicante’s patron saint. Legend has it he appeared on a white horse in the Middle Ages to help Christians take back the region’s Muslim-controlled territories. Locals put on an elaborate reenactment of the battle, replete with costumes, explosions and more. It’s a festive and culturally fascinating time to study Spanish in Alicante.
June: Las Hogueras de San Juan
Fireworks paint the sky and papier-mâché constructions go up in flames during this dramatic festival, the most important of the year. As with every Spanish fiesta, general fun and debauchery ensue throughout the month.
