Customs

Customs in Alicante. Many customs in our town have been celebrated for centuries and are now fixed firmly in the traditions of Alicante such as the Romeria Santa Faz, the 'mona' and the night of San Juan.

The are many customs in Alicante and on this page you will find them all detailed for you to inform yourself before coming to visit our beautiful town. It is always a delight to enjoy the local traditions when you come to visit Alicante.

The 'mona' is always celebrated from the Thursday to the Sunday of Easter week. During this time it is usual for people to go to visit the countryside with family or friends to eat the 'mona'. It is a type of cake with an egg in the middle. This tradition has been handed down from our forebears and it has always been traditional to crack the egg on the head of a distracted friend.

Many young people take advantage of the festivities of the mona to go camping with friends. Most families use this time to meet with friends and family and spend the day in the country.

The night of San Juan is spent lighting bonfires. It is always celebrated on the 23rd of June and it is traditional to spend the day on the beach eating and drinking. Later on in the evening a bonfire is lighted and when the fire is lit it is traditional to jump over the flames while making a wish.

The festivities of muslims and christians is celebrated in most of the province of Alicante and follows a set pattern that has been the same during hundreds of years. The muslims and christians parade with flags and then battle to conquer the town of Alicante. In Alicante this celebration takes place in the areas of Altozano, San Blas and Joke Antonio.

When we celebrate the tradition of the Romeria Santa Faz the people of Alicante parade nearly 8kms with the 'Santa Faz' until they reach the church where it will be displayed. It is quite common to see the pilgrims walk with a stick with a piece of rosemary sticking out of the top.

During Easter week you can see the devotion of the people of Alicante when they climb the steep, thin and long streets of the part of the town known as Santa Cruz. This happens on the Wednesday of Easter week.
