The Fiestas Del Santisimo Cristo del Rayo is a unique Moratalla festival which means Holy Christ of the Thunder Celebration. Cows and bulls are let loose in the streets while people gather together in the oldest street called Calle Mayor. From 11/07/2012 to 17/07/2012.
Dedicated to the image of Christ which, in 1622, served as a lightning conductor and saved the town from catastrophe. For a week there are noisy encierros (bull-running) through the streets of the town. Each encierro lasts some three hours.
