This is one of the most important events of the region and is celebrated with fireworks, events, processions in the sea and shows. During previous holidays in Spain you have probably witnessed a Moros y Cristianos festive. A celebration in memory of a Christian victory over the Moors. At first almost all Spain falls under Moorish regime. But as the Moorish rule weakens and the Christian resistance grows stronger, the Moorish territory becomes smaller. Until in the last Moorish leaders retired from Granada and Spain is completely in the hands of Christians again.

We have been to El Campello many times and last year took our son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandchildren who are 8 and 6 and they loved it, saying that your children are older and their expectations may be greater. There is a lovely beach and we spent a lot of time there as that was what they wanted, the tram gives excellent and easy access to the theme parcs etc near Benidorm and we went to Aqualandia for the day which they enjoyed, also Alicante as the Santa Barbara castle is awesome and worth a visit. We like the fact that Campello is relaxing and has a lovely atmosphere but has good tram links to more touristy areas.
