Its Fiesta time

The countdown is on to the official start of Rojales’ fiestas in honour of its patron saint, San Pedro and the Moors and Christians. The traditional way to kick off the celebrations is by setting off a rocket known as the Chupinazo, which will happen in the Plaza de España on Sunday June 17th.
