Moscatel Festivals: In September, the Moscatel festivals are held in Teulada-Moraira with various tastings, where you can try the famous mistela produced by a company from the Cooperativa Agrícola Sant Vicent Ferrer.

Patronal festivities in honor of the Virgen del Carmen in Moraira: This procession is held every summer in honor of the missing sailors. It is celebrated in most of the coastal towns with its own port, even though this tradition has been lost in some localities. During this maritime procession the Virgen del Carmen leaves the Port of Moraira in a boat decorated with flowers and offerings, accompanied by fishing boats and recreational boats.

Gastronomy

Wines: The microclimate of the Costa Blanca and an optimum degree of maturation give these wines their character and personality. The star product is Moscatel Mistelas and Moscatel liqueur wines, awarded with national and international awards. The production of the autochthonous grape variety "Moscatel Romano", with great aromatic power, makes it possible to produce important reference wines.

Fish: As in most of the coastal towns of the Costa Blanca, Moraira has taken advantage of the fishery products for its traditional dishes. The fish offers different and tasty combinations such as the "putxero de polp" the "sopa de peix" or different salting of melva, "bull" or "anxova". You can try fresh fish with the Bahía de Moraira quality mark, caught using traditional fishing gear.

History and Heritage

Moraira Castle: The Moraira Castle built in the s. XVIII for defensive and surveillance purposes, it dominates the beach of l’Ampolla. With its south-facing façade and a single door in its northern part, it was formerly accessed by crossing a moat and a drawbridge once the protection pincers were passed. On its door is the shield of the Bourbons with the completion date: 1742. The cover is protected by a small wall, with seven openings, where the cannons were located. Thick walls divide the interior into a central nave and two lateral ones, occupying some 200m2. Today it houses a thematic installation on the Watchtowers of the Valencian coast.

Hermitage of the Font Santa in Teulada: A 19th century building made up of the hermitage, a fountain and the hermit's house, which formerly lived there. It was raised in honor of San Vicente Ferrer. Tradition has it that the Saint visited his sister Constanza in Teulada on several occasions. On one of these visits, Constanza became thirsty and Saint Vincent made the water flow so that he could drink. In the same place, this building was built with a fountain, whose water never stops flowing, to commemorate this miracle.
