Fiesta de Moros y Cristianos - Agenda de Ocio Cultural de la Provincia de Málaga y su costa del Sol

Moors and Christians Festival


One of the most unique and popular festivals amongst tourists in the Province of Málaga is the Fiesta de Moros y Cristianos (Moors and Christians Festival) in Benadalid, a municipality in Serranía de Ronda. In this town's festival calendar, this festival stands out. It takes place at the end of August and coincides with celebrations in honour of the town's patron saint, San Isidro. The festival lasts 3 days and is held in the town's castle and its environs.

It features a theatre performance recited in verse that takes place on improvised stages, and it recreates an authentic military battle in memory of the Mudejar uprising that occurred in Sierra Bermeja in 1501. Most of Benadalid's residents take part in the performance. The action culminates in the victory of the Christian forces and the conversion of the infidels.
