April sees the festival of San Jordi (St George) in Alcoi, the 'capital' of the Moors and Christians. The landing of the Moorish ships takes place at the beach of La Vilajoyosa in July, and there are midnight parades in Villena in September, all linked to the same theme.
Undoubtedly the most well known festival is that of the bonfires of Sant Joan (St John) which happen all along the coast from June, with the largest and most spectacular being in and around Alicante itself.
Mediterranean cuisine is always worth investigating, and the local variations of the region include a rice dish called 'Arros Abanda', a fish dish on the coast yet inland flavoured instead with rabbit and snails. Other rice dishes are also popular, such as 'arroz con costra', baked with egg crust and, of course, the ubiquitous paella makes a welcome appearance all over the region.
