Anyone that hasn’t seen this display of light, costumes and culture, must visit Javea. In the last week of July, the festivities of Moors and Christians are held in the Javea Port. Their celebration is relatively recent, but important in the region. These festivities represent the confrontations in the past between these two religious communities. The Christian re-conquest of the land held by the Arabs is commemorated. These festivities are among the most noteworthy, for their spectacular nature.
