Moors and Christians


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.

<p>We visited Pepe&#8217;s Restaurant on the outskirts of the village called Alcalali, in the Jalon Valley on Sunday and we all enjoyed a super meal of roast pork, lamb and Spanish style steak, mushroom and kidney pie. All the food is home made style with generous portions, wine, starters and desserts, total cost for the 6 people? 105 euros, that&#8217;s 34 euros a couple with tip included. Try it yourselves, open Sundays for two sittings, reserve table at least 2 weeks before your visit. Telephone 96 648 2456. Drive from Alcalali to Pedreguer and its on your left, 300 metres from the village.</p>
