Festival de moors and christians of Pollença

21 Votes

The Virgin of the Angels is the Patron Saint of Pollença, a famous village especially well-known because every year, in the middle of a multitude of neighbors and foreigners, they celebrate the simulacrum of the confrontation between Moors and Christians. The battle recalls the struggle of May 30, 1550, in which the Christians headed by Joan Mas, obtained the victory over the Turkish pirates led by the terrifying Dragut. For a few hours, in Pollença you can smell the gunpowder and mesclat (high alcoholic beverage), which runs in abundance among the hordes of the two warring. This colorful Festival is celebrated five days before the feast of the Patron Saint.
