  • The Castilian festival, declared an Intangible Asset of Local Importance, hosts rehearsals, dances and parades during the week

Tradition and dance are the protagonists in Castalla during the celebration of the ‘Danses 2023’. This Castalla festival has been declared an Intangible Asset of Local Relevance, and is a genuine example of the town’s tradition. The Town Council and the Comisión de les Danses, in collaboration with El Sogall, have organised an extensive programme of activities throughout the week with rehearsals, dances and parades.

The mayor of Castalla, Jesús López Blanco, highlighted “the importance of the Danses for the heritage and culture of Castalla”. The mayor has defended these popular dances “as a sign of our identity, tradition and folklore, which is currently very much alive, uniting past and present, thanks to the great popular participation they have”. For the mayor, “a good example of this is the consideration of the Danses de Castalla as an Intangible Asset of Local Relevance”.

Throughout the week, the Committee has held rehearsals in different parts of the town to prepare for the celebration of the festival. Central Street, the placeta de l’Era dels Cavalls, the Convent roundabout and the placeta del Carreter have been the locations chosen for this activity.

In addition, the central part of the Danses takes place during the weekend. On Friday 22nd September, at 20:00, the parade and the collection of the Dansa Kings will start. Then, at 8:30 p.m., the dance takes place with the participation of the typical “carasses”. On Saturday 23rd September, at 19:00, the parade and the collection of the kings will take place again.
