Jijona Winter Moors and Christians

The second Moors and Christians fiesta of the year will take place in Jijona (Xixona) from the 26th to the 28th October 2018. The town holds two celebrations, one in August and one in October because many people can not take time off to enjoy the festivities in August. Jijona is internationally known for its ice-cream production, which keeps lots of the local people busy during the summer!
