Lleida Moors and the Christians

The Moors and the Christians festival of Lleida is usually held on May. With the celebration of this event, the city has proudly recovered a lost tradition whose background dates back to the 12th century.

It is a colourful event where about 700 people dressed up with splendid warrior uniforms from both sides, take active part. In the morning there is the so-called children's parade and at midday there is the introduction of the bands, which will play the city's festival own music.

Before dusk the leaders of both sides begin some satirical speeches that give rise to an argument which is followed by a spectacular battle, with the incomparable landmark of Seu Vella as a backdrop.
