A popular "fiesta" is celebrated in the town of Caravaca de la Cruz every 2nd of May.
It is Los Caballos del Vino (Wine horses), it is celebrated in commemoration of a tradition that took place in the 13th century.
On that date, the Christian besieged in the fortress by the Arabs managed to break the siege and search for water. When they failed to find any water, they returned to the fortress with the wineskins on their horses filled with wine.
The commemoration consists in decoratively harnessed horses galloping up the steep slopes to the Castle. Together with the Moor and Christian processions, these are the main events in the festive calendar of Caravaca.
The Uribe Palace (16th century) holds the Festivals Museum where you will be able to live them in first person.
It is declared of International Tourist Interest
