An authentic southern Spanish art form, Flamenco music can be best explained by dividing it into three forms – Cane the song, Baile the dance, and Guitarra the guitar. Many diverse cultural countries once dominated Spain therefore Spanish music has been influenced by a myriad of cultures, for example, the fathers of Spanish music could easily be the Gypsies, other influences included the Tartessos and the Muslims.

Moors and Christians Festival Javea

Javea Moors and Christians Festival Javea

In the history of Spain and Spanish civilization there were enough violent actions with dramatic conquests and defeats to make a fantastic computer game, or better still, a fabulous Festival. Spaniards in general tend to be enthusiastic, adventurous and volatile; perhaps it has something to do with the climate. Far more than weather, however, the historical heritage of today’s Spanish people is a huge factor, which also accounts for one of the most beloved and elaborate of Spain’s many festivals.

The Canal de la Fontana runs through the community of Javea and was formally the Rio Gorgos river mouth before it was diverted to the Port area. While the Canal is quite scenic and adds charm for sure to the streets of the city, it also has a practical use as it has been utilised for over five decades to moor small boats. In fact, small boats line the sides of the Canal that has been recently been remodelled. The end result is more space for practical use and more decorative banks and bridges to make it a more pedestrian friendly area.

Javea is very fond of its festivals, like every Spanish city and town and village and hamlet – anywhere people are gathered in a community large or small. Festivals may be based on ancient traditions or they may have been instigated in recent years; in fact it sometimes seems that festivals are their own reason, just a fine excuse for a party.
