About the Event
ALCOI & BOCAIRENT
Alcoy is known as “the city of bridges” or also as “the city of the three rivers”, given to the number of the rivers that run through it: the Riquer, the Benisaidó, and the Molinar, all tributaries of the Serpis.
The city is full of amazing natural parks, but it mostly stands out in the tourist field for its historical heritage and its traditional celebrations, considered to be the most ancient in Spain. Some are also well-known internationally, such as the “Fiesta de los Moros y Cristianos” and the “Cabalgata de Reyes Magos de Alcoy”.
Bocairent, or “the village between the rocks”, originated during the Muslim period with the name of Bukayrān. This is well reflected in the conformation of its historic center, full of stairs and steep streets. You can’t miss its three chapels: Sant Joan, Mare de Déu dels Desemparats y Mare de Déu d’Agost. If you like museums this is the perfect city for you: the “Museo de Oficios y Costumbres” and the “Museo Arqueológico Municipal Vicent Casanova” will give you the opportunity to dive into the culture of this beautiful village.
