Between 1 and 4 September, the capital city of Costa Daurada will travel back in time while offering a unique opportunity to witness the medieval Salou, with dozens of activities, historical re-enactment events and a stunning Medieval Market.
The 21st King Jaume I Festival is set on the departure of the Crown of Aragon troops towards the conquest of Majorca. For that matter, 4 venues will home most of the programme activities: Torre Vella, the Medieval Market –located round the streets to the west of Barcelona street–, Plaza Bonet and the Pere Martell Campground, next to the local market.
Among the activities you can enjoy over the 4 days the festival will actually last, there’s 2 we’d like to suggest. In the first place, it’s one of the main attractions of the festival: the departure of King Jaume I and his entourage on Saturday 3 September at 19h, a re-enactment event that will allow you to relive the moment King Jaume I and his troops were about to leave towards Majorca.
And, in the second place, check out the Medieval Market, located along the following streets: Ponent, Iglésia, Rafael de Casanoves, Joan Miró and Pins. Workshops, displays, artisan products, parades, live music and much more on 4 pretty exciting days.
Besides, don’t forget to check out the official programme in order to know even more about what you can find in the King Jaume I Festival. So, would you like to join us on a trip back to the past of Salou?
