Alcoy


Alcoy or Alcoi is famous because of its Moors and Christians festival, which is the best in Alicante province and most known internationally, it takes place on April and dates may be altered due to Easter week.



Alcoi is mainly an industrial town and is located 54 Km up north of Alicante (inland); the journey from Alicante Airport takes about 35-45 minutes. As you visit the area, you can see that the city is surrounded by mountains and you can witness one of the most beautiful mediterranean forest scenery in the province.

    The festival is the highlight of the year for the townsfolk of Alcoy with no less than 28 separate Moorish and Christian armies parading around in full medieval, military attire. The proceedings are taken very seriously by the Alcoyanos as they march in their companies all day accompanied by bands.

    Mock battles also take place at various points throughout the festival culminating in a huge simulated battle around Alcoy's castle. The Spanish love of fireworks is evident during the fiesta and the balconies of the whole town are decorated with red cross flag of St George.
