Moors versus Christians (Moros y cristianos)

From the 15-th to the 17-th century , Mallorca constantly suffered from attacks by Moors and pirates. The men bravely fought them with swords and axes. The women were helping them with pans and kitchen implements.

Every year these battles are re-enacted in Pollensa and Soller and are a popular tourist attraction. In Soller they take place on the second Monday of May and in Pollensa on the second of August.
