This fiesta takes place very September to commemorate the landing of King James on Majorca in 1229, and the subsequent defeat of the Moors. It is marked by a series of events ranging from cultural walks, Majorcan folk dancing, brass band concerts to discos and film shows on the beach. There is a medieval market set out along the sea front on the final weekend with a wide range of crafts, food and drinks for sale.
A parade of Moors takes place on the Friday evening, with lots of fun and frivolity.
Saturday evening sees the parade of Moors and Christians, followed by an enactment of the final battle on the beach.
To end the festivities there is a spectacular firework display on the beach on Sunday night.
The actual date of the Fiesta is never published till around July, but is usually the first two weeks in September.
