MOORS AND CHRISTIANS FESTIVITIES IN ELDA


The moor party “Huestes del Cadí” are a group of 900 people. The last day in each year festivity they meet to be taken “a family photo” as remembrance. Satur, the English teacher in the Comenius project, is a member of the group, as well as her family. Maybe you can distinguish her face among the rest. The first photo is “the family photo 2007”at Saint Ann’s church main entrance.

At 8:00 a.m. the groups take part in a parade called “Diana” in which they march silently listening to some of the pieces at the music box enjoying the solemnity of the still sleeping town.
Satur’s son and daughter (Adrian and Paula) were the infant leaders in the 2007 celebration. They marched on horseback preceding their group in the parade. The dresses and make-up were specially designed and made for them.
Also you can see Manolo, our Vicedirector, and Satur, our Direction Accountant and English teacher, wearing the traditional moor costumes of each of their groups.
