The Fiesta del Rey Jaume I ready to remember the history of Salou

Poster of the Festival of King Jaume I of Salou 2023

Salou. Costa Dorada. 27 August 2023. Every year, at the end of August and beginning of September, Salou relives one of the most important historical events in Catalan history: the departure of the ships of King Jaume I from the capital of the Costa Dorada to the conquest of Mallorca in 1229. In 2023 , the Festival of King Jaume I of Salou will be from August 31 to September 3, with multiple activities and a colorful and lively Medieval Market.

In this edition, in addition, the costumes used at the party have been improved with the aim of providing it with a rigorous historical base. Thus, the members of the Associació de Dones de Salou have made, by hand, new costumes typical of the 13th century, with the advice of the designer and pattern maker Olivia Garzón, and with the support of the Salou City Council. In addition to King Jaume I, around thirty characters from the clergy, nobility, knights and villagers will wear new period costumes.
