Diary Dates 2017



Semana Santa - Easter - Sunday 9th April (Palm Sunday) to 16th April (Easter Sunday).

There are a number of parades throughout the week leading up to Easter. They are solemn parades where the people of Caravaca carry the religious edifices through the streets of Caravaca.





Fiesta de Los Caballos del Vino - Festival of the Wine Horses - Monday 1 May to Tuesday 2 May.

The event starts the night before with a peel of the bells and a musical parade to fireworks. This is then followed by a meal of 'Migas' (a breadcrumb based local dish) served to all in the Plaza de los Caballos del Vino. The main event starts with a flower offering on Friday morning starting at La Glorieta up to the Sanctuary where the traditional flower offering is made to la Stma. Vera Cruz.

On Saturday morning at 7am every bell will chime from every church in Caravaca followed by fireworks and a mass at El Templete. From 9:30am the horses will gather in all their finery and then they will be paraded through the streets. At approximately 3pm the race will start - each horse is raced up the hill towards the Sanctuary in a timed event. The fastest horse is the winner with prizes being presented for the most beautifully decorated horse as well.



Fiesta de Los Moros y Cristianos - Festival of the Moors and Christians - Wednesday 3 May to Friday 5 May

The festival features many parades of the Moors and Christians including a special Children's parade and the bathing of the Holy Cross. There will also be a mock battle between the Moors and Christians and firework displays every night.
