Moratalla is a small town and the centre of a large municipality of the same name. In 2009, the population of Moratalla was 8,455: some 5,900 in the town of Moratalla itself and the rest in districts such as Benizar, El Sabinar or Casa Requena. It is chiefly a mountainous and comparatively cool territory, snow being frequent in the highest zones and cold valleys (Campo de San Juan, El Sabinar). It is crossed by minor rivers (Alhárabe, Benamor) which flow into the Segura. There is a main reservoir of the Segura at El Cenajo. Main representatives of the local fauna are wild boars, Spanish Ibex, short-toed eagles and Moorish turtles. Wide portions of the municipality are protected in Special Protection Areas. Its main economic resources are tourism and agriculture (apricots, almonds, olives and olive oil, wood, barley). Moratalla’s sights include the Fortress Castle, home to the “Tribute Tower”, a military-gothic style building which dates from the 15th century. There is also an Arab castle in Benizar, built in the 12th century. The Catholic Church of Our Lady of the Asunción dates from the 16th century. Other churches include Santa Ana or San Francisco and the “House of Christ”, on the mountain, built by the Order of La Merced from the 16th century. There are two Roman bridges in Moratalla: the Jesus Christ Bridge over the Benámor River, and the Hellin Bridge over the Alhárabe River. During the Holy Week, there is a traditional tamborada, a collective drumming, which can last all day long. In southern Spain, tamboradas are characteristic of Moratalla as well as of Mula (in Murcia) and Hellín and Tobarra (in Albacete). A unique aspect of Moratalla’s Holy Week is that every tamborista (drummer) dresses in distinct, hand-made robes. Drums are also traditionally hand-made. Another event is the Fiestas del Santísimo Cristo del Rayo (Holy Christ of the Thunder Celebrations) July 11-17. This celebration takes place in the streets of Moratalla, in which cows and bulls are set free. People get together into their peñas, placed in the Eldest Street “Calle Mayor”, where they enjoy the party. There is also a fair which may be visited every night from 10 to 17 July. It’s like an amusement park with many “street-shops” where you can buy some hand-made products.
