With the Moors and Christians Festival, the city has proudly recovered a lost tradition that dates from the 12th century. The Festival starts on Saturday in la Paeria square in order to finish on Sunday with the last battle.

On Sunday morning, child's procession take place and then presented the Lleida's Band playing traditional music. In the afternoon the groups of Moors and Christians are joined in the Seu Vella to parade with their colorful uniforms in the main streets. Before nightfall, they start a satirical speech that cause a verbal confrontation that follows the spectacular battle, with the incomparable framework of the Seu Vella, the castle that crowns the city as a backdrop.
