October 9 is a special day in Valencia. Its that day where the Moors was rejected from the city in 1238. The city of Valencia celebrates the event by dressing up as Moorish knights and belly dancers parading true the inner city. At midnight it all ends in a climax with a grand firework display.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
