SÓLLER

11/05 Moros i cristians – Les Valentes Dones

Sa Fira turns the centre of Sóller into a huge open-air market. But the most eagerly-awaited ceremony is the re-enactment of the battle in which the Christians vanquished the Saracen troops who disembarked in the Port of Sóller in 1516. It is followed by a procession of floats with the Valentes Dones, who represent the women who contributed to the Christian victory.
