This weekend Rojales will be celebrating the festival of the Moors and Christians which dates back to the 16th century and commemorates the confrontation that took place between Moorish and Christian soldiers in the 13th century over the rule of Spain.
Each year events are held in honour of the city’s patron saint who’s sudden and unexpected intervention, is believed to have given victory to the Christians in spite of their being outnumbered by the Moors
