FESTIVITIES AND TRADITIONS
FESTIVITY OF CARTHAGINIANS AND ROMANS
FIESTA DECLARADA DE INTERÉS TURÍSTICO INTERNACIONAL
17 SEP 2021 - 26 SEP 2021
A disembarkment commemorates the taking of the city, in the year 209 a.c. by the Roman troops of Escipión. This is the reason of a festive week in which days dedicated to one side or the other alternate. The marriage between Hannibal and Himilce or the day of the Roman Circus, with its gladiators and wild beasts, are the pillars of a huge parade which takes place on Saturday. This Saturday is the most important day of the festivity, when the troops and legions march through the city.
