Xá­tiva will be the place to be this week­end as the Three Kings pa­rade co­in­cides with the first me­dieval mar­ket of the year in the re­gion.

Xà­tiva's bustling this week­end with the Three Kings and the first me­dieval mar­ket of 2019 – from to­day (Fri­day) to Sun­day in­clu­sive, the La Costera dis­trict cap­i­tal will be packed with craft stalls and pe­riod en­ter­tain­ment. Set in an era about 1,000 years af­ter Balt­hazar, Mel­chior and Casper brought their omi­nous gifts to the Baby Je­sus, but com­bin­ing the two in the same three days, the Me­di­ae­val fête in­cludes pa­rades, birds of prey ex­hi­bi­tions, chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties and art work­shops, as well as a tav­ern, Arab tea tent and dozens of stands sell­ing hand­made home dec­o­ra­tions and ac­ces­sories. Pot­tery, leather­work, glass, wood­work, jew­ellery and plenty more will be on sale, and you can watch it all be­ing made be­fore you buy. The fayre will be spread out from the mar­ket square along the C/ Pi, C/ Noguera and C/ Calder­ería from 11.00 to 22.00, although some will close for lunch.
