The festivals clearly show the welcoming and passionate nature of our land. Any excuse is a good one to go out to the street, to take a break for a few days, or a few hours, from daily life and dive into a sea of shared emotions, hugs, fun, tradition and feelings.
It is during the festivities when a town shows itself as it is, so sharing and living the festivities of La Vila Joiosa is a necessary experience to discover its true identity: a town with open arms where everyone is welcome.
And that hospitality, typical of the Mediterranean nature, has its greatest expression in the Fiestas de Moros i Cristians, from 24 to 31 July, which were declared of International Tourist Interest in 2003. During that week the doors of the barracks ( festival sites ) are open to all visitors to eat and drink, to dance and enjoy, to feel and experience the festivals.
But not only that magical week, at the end of July, allows us to know the cheerful and jovial nature of the viler@s (La Vila´s locals). La Vila Joiosa offers an extensive calendar of traditions, festivals, celebrations, pilgrimages, ... Throughout the year, from January with San Antonio to December with Christmas, every month we find a great opportunity to visit La Vila Joiosa and experience their festivals, only then you will discover it at its finest.
