SOLLER Council has increased the price of the Firo, the town’s Moors and Christians celebration, from the original 5€ to €10.
In addition, only 1,500 tickets in the shape of bracelets will be sold for those who are not members of Moors and Christians associations.
These bracelets include entrance to all re-enactments, which commemorate the battles between Moorish invaders and Christians that took place in the period between the eighth and 15th century. In addition, ticket holders will be able to enjoy a welcome meal and transport paid for by the town council.
Organisers of the festival explained that, even though the celebrations have been free until this year, the decision to charge a fee was made due to the large amount of visitors, which has often exceeded the places available and consequently represented a danger.
