The festival of King Jaume I

From August 31st to September 3rd, the capital of the Costa Dorada travels back to the Medieval era in commemoration of King Jaume I and his conquest of Mallorca in the year 1229, which set sail from the port of Salou.

The festival of King Jaume I brings together various cultural events, historical reenactments, and activities for all audiences.

Furthermore, a Medieval Market is held in the old nucleus of the city. In this market, you’ll find stalls with artisanal products, ancient trades, exhibitions, entertainment, and much more!

To conclude the weekend, on Sunday, the 3rd, the festival bids farewell with the parade of King Jaume I through the streets of the town, accompanied by various characters such as horses, footmen, ecclesiastics, engineers, doctors, ladies, and nobles, among others.

This parade sets off at 7:00 pm from the Teatre Auditori in Salou square and aims to recall the event that brought together the most important figures of our medieval history from May to September 1229.
