How to spend time in spring on the Costa Blanca?

Spring is the moment when not only nature awakens but also cultural life in Spain does. Easter is the most important holiday. It is celebrated with great revelry in this part of Europe. It is the heart of tradition and local good, which the Iberian Peninsula residents boast about.

 

Fiestas de la Magdalena in Castellón de la Plana

These celebrations take place from March 23 to 31 and commemorate the founding of Castellón. They last for 9 days and are culturally related to mythology, history and local folklore. The streets are filled with parades and processions, including many concerts, competitions, fireworks shows, regional wine tasting and cuisine. In addition, in each part of the city there are light structures popularly known as gaiata, which every year compete with each other for the title of the most beautiful one.

 

Semana Santa

The celebration of Easter in Spain is known all over the world. No wonder that every year hundreds of thousands of tourists wish to experience its charm. The processions of hooded nazarenos and penitentes from the church fraternities are of particular interest - starting on Palm Sunday (Domingo de Ramos).

 

Fiestas de Moros y Cristianos in Alcoy

In early May, from 4th to 5th, a Spanish fiesta takes place in Alcoy to commemorate the great battle of 1276 between Moors and Christians. During the Moros y Cristianos celebrations in Alcoy, about 5,000 people parade in costumes from that period to the accompaniment of instruments. There are stagings of battles, demonstrations of fights and archery.

 

Fiesta de las Cruces de Mayo in Alicante

The Feast of the May Month Crosses usually takes place between April and May. In the Santa Cruz district, these days are full of cheerful atmosphere, colours and crosses made of carnations. This feast draws on the popular legend of Constantine the Great. Before defeating his enemies, the emperor had a vision, in which he saw a cross dazzling with a glowing inscription: "With this sign you will win." 

 

Constantine built it and managed to defeat the barbarians. After that he became a Christian and constantly sought the Cross of Christ.

 

At Mount Calvary, his mother discovered several versions to distinguish the true from the false, and laid them down on the sick, who found relief by touching the true cross of Christ.
