PERMANENT EXPOSITION

The traditions are a very important element for the cultural heritage. Some of the examples are: the parties related to the fire as el rodar las fallas, announcing the arrival of the three magicians kings or the bonfire of Sant Antoni. The festival of Moors and Christians in honour of Saint Boniface, martyr, in mid-May are the most crowded, in which the Christian conquest of Bitrir is playfully commemorated. In July the party of the Most Holy Christ stands out. And in the patron saint fiestas in October in honour of the Virgen del Remedio, "les carasses" stands out, a parade with music and dancing by people wearing painted cloth masks (carassa) making fun of the public.

Spart failure

A recently manufactured esparto torch that retains its origins in the 17th century as part of the traditions linked to fire brought by the Christian repopulation of the village of Petrer. These torches are made on the night before the night of the Kings by the young villagers, who collect the esparto from the surrounding mountains. At dusk, young and old went to the esplanade of the Castle where they began to roll lit, going down in procession to the center of the town. A tradition that, nowadays, continues to develop as it did in the past.
