The Intercasas Meeting, which is held every 14 years in Elche, has been promoted by the Department of Festivals of Elche City Council together with the Andalusian Government.
Elche’s mayor, Carlos Gonzalez, showed his pride and satisfaction that the city of Elche is the meeting point for Andalusians from Albacete and the province of Alicante.
Carlos went on to point out that “in the middle of the last century, more than 40,000 Andalusians left their land and came to Elche to live and work, which has left deep roots in our city”.
“Elche has a deep Andalusian soul.”
The Mayor added: “The people of Elche have, to a great extent, imbued ourselves with the culture, heritage, gastronomy and idiosyncrasy of the Andalusian people, and at the same time the Andalusians have also imbibed the culture of Elche.”
