The Councillor for Fiestas in Orihuela reckons there were about 100,000 visitors to the Medieval Market over the three days of last weekend. He thanks the local and national services for civil protection along with the members of Red Cross. In fact, this year turned out to be the least eventful edition of the Medieval Market.
Nine thousand people visited the museums in the city including many who took the opportunity to see the display of costumes at the Tejada Sorzano Museum that Pam and I visited. There were 2,600 people who requested information from the Tourist Office, nine hundred more than last year.
Moving the date to April proved to be successful however, it may move back to February for next year because that seems to suit the Association of Moors and Christians better.
