The #Moros y #Cristianos #Fiesta aka #Moors & #Christians #festival are celebrated in many towns.

In the 8th century, #Cordoba & #Toledo fell to the Moors (Muslims) & it wasn't until #Granada was captured in the 15th century by Christians that #Reconquista was complete.

Each #April & #May locals dress up as either Moors or Christians & enact #battle scenes between the two groups.

#LasFallasDeValencia is a five day #festival / #fiesta and is how the people of #Valencia celebrate their patron saints (Joseph) day and the passing of winter.

In #March each year, the city is filled with hundreds of individual works of art ( #Fallas or #Falles ) that are eventually burned as bonfires ... and with loads of #fireworks on the festivals last night during what is known as #LaCrema (the Burning).

#FestivalCastrilloDeMurcia : #ElColacho or #BabyJumping is a Spanish #festival that takes place in the village of #Castrillo de #Murcia on the Sunday after the #feast of #CorpusChristi (60 days after #Easter ) ... usually in #May or #June .

The #Colacho are men dressed as the #devil in red and yellow, who #jump over babies born in the previous 12 months. The idea is that as these “devils” jump over the babies, they will lure the evil spirits away thus leaving them pure.
