Large illuminated hearts will welcome everyone and there will be a photo call to capture the sweet moment, on this unforgettable night.
More than 500 heart-shaped helium balloons will be placed all over the Old Town to herald the celebration, including a balloon arch Calle Enmedio, where no couple should resist pausing at, holding hands.
The Cueva Mariquita La Posá (where a beautiful maiden sacrificed herself in marriage to a local sorcerer to save her people) is the perfect place for those romantics who wish to hand in their love phrases, which the enamoured character Lucínda will be on hand to collect then choose the best. The most inspired ones will receive a book of Mojácar legends and the writer of the winning phrase, a night for two in a charming hotel in the town, plus a dinner for two with drinks in “super romantic” places.
In the Parish Church, married Catholics may renew their vows and receive the benediction and, some of the most beautiful messages of love from the bible and will be read out.

Music, which plays a leading role in so many romantic evenings, will be in all the squares in the Old Town. Live piano melodies, saxophone and boleros. On the Mirador of the Plaza Nueva, there will be a dance for couples, with romantic music supplied by a DJ, who will also be the master of ceremonies for the high point of the night.
