30/01/2014

Orihuela Mediaeval Market, 1st to 3rd FebruaryOrihuela is holding its annual mediaeval market between Friday 1st and Sunday 3rd February, filling the centre of this historic City with colour, noise and activity. This is a large scale mediaeval market and is spread across a wide swathe of the old quarter of Orihuela, divided into two distinct areas with the cathedral at the centre to represet the historic heritage of the city itself: Moors and Christians.

The Moorish camp is focused around the church of Santiago, enveloping the church of Justa y Orihuela Mediaeval Market, 1st to 3rd FebruaryRufina and the Moors and Christians museum, and the Christian encampment spreads across to the emblematic church of Santo Domingo, each of the two sides imprinting its own identity on the stalls and street decorations.

As you’d expect, there are a wide range of artisan products on offer from the craftsmen present, all of Orihuela Mediaeval Market, 1st to 3rd Februarythem costumed, with lots of street entertainment added in as well. Throughout the open hours of the market a series of “parades” through the streets are undertaken by different characters, including an apothecary and cart, a nun, belly dancers, jugglers, musicians and fire eaters. There is also a children’s zone and falconry displays, as well as an equestrian display, armed combat by both sides, equestrian display and mediaeval tournament.

Orihuela Mediaeval Market, 1st to 3rd FebruaryPracticalities:
– Be careful where you put your wallet in the crowded streets!
– Parking. Don´t even attempt to drive into the centre. The safest bet is to park next to the Ociopea shopping centre on the outskirts and just walk across, saves a lot of hassle.
– There will be maps distributed by guides during the market, but head for the cathedral in the centre as a point of orientation.Basic map showing the distribution of the market below, yellow for Moors, red for Christians.
