Roman re-enactment Festival of Villajoyosa and Alfaz del Pi

FESTVM ALONIS (in Latin, "The party of Allon") is a free Roman festival that takes part every year thanks to an agreement between the City council of Villajoyosa and the Cultural Association Hispania Romana, dean of the Roman historical recreation in Spain.
In this event a Roman military camp ("castra") is faithfully recreated in different natural areas of Villajoyosa, to remember that camp installed in the center of actual Villajoyosa during the Sertorian Wars, around 75 aC. It is still the only Roman castra known in the Valencian Community. Everything in the camp reproduces faithfully the clothes, the weapons, the symbols, the daily objects of a legionary of the Legion VIIII Hispana, the famous "lost legion" whose trace is lost towards 130 AD in Noviomagus (Holland). Hispania Romana recreates the era of the Cantabrian Wars (29-19 BC).
Festum Alonis pays special attention to civilians, not just military life. Each year the public is shown aspects of daily life in Roman times such as social classes, trades, women's lives, children's games, etc.
