The Councillor has invited everyone in the city to take part in the event by voting for their favourite image. The winning image will be used in posters and advertising for the Moors and Christians 2023 fiestas.

The exhibition includes a children’s drawing exhibition made up of 270 illustrations divided into three age categories, reflecting some of the most important moments of this Festival of Regional Tourist Interest from the point of view of the children of Elche.

The exhibition is at La Calaforra, Carrer Uberna, 14, 03202 Elche, Alicante. For more information call (+34) 966 65 82 43.

The Moors and Christians Festival in the city of Elche dates back to the year 1744, however, it was not until 1977 that the Festivities took on a new meaning thanks to the creation of the Moors and Christians Festive Association.

The festival is held in August in honour of the Virgin of the Assumption.
