This lively re-enactment of the battle that ensued when the Moors unsuccessfully invaded Port Sóller in May 1561 begins in the port and makes its way to the town, ending in the main square with the Christians’ victory celebrations.
What to expect
Thousands of people dress up in traditional costumes and play music, drink wine and dance on the beach. The battle itself takes place on the Monday evening with lots of noise, fireworks and plenty of chaos.
Cameras and earplugs are essential if visiting this colourful and noisy spectacle and don’t be surprised to leave covered in black face paint and sand!
