The "Misteri d'Elx" app aims to bring the public the play of medieval origin shown in Elche (Alicante) making available their songs at any time of year, with their translations and explanations in different languages.
The application also allows you to follow live, during the days of representation, each of the scenes, as an interactive guide, also in different languages. You can also buy tickets when available.
The Mystery of Elche is a cultural treasure of the people of Elche and one of the most outstanding jewels of the valencian cultural heritage, as its pronouncement as National Monument in 1931, and its inclusion, in 2001, in the first Proclamation of Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, show.
La Festa, as this play of medieval origin is also known, is represented every year in the Basilica of Saint Mary in Elche in August, in order to celebrate the festivity of the Virgin of the Assumption. On August 14th the first part of the drama, known as the Vespra, is enacted. The second part, the Festa, is on the 15th. Besides, on the 11th, 12th and 13th of August dress rehearsals in which both parts are enacted take place.
In even years, the Mistery of Elche is also shown on 29 and 30 October (rehearsals) and November 1 (Vespra and Festa).
