The Lopera City Council has tried to consolidate the historical event of the Battle of Lopera as a tribute, cultural act and tourist element, for which a recreation has been held since 2016 in the trenches located next to the Salado stream, in the setting called Las Esperillas , where the “trenches” are located.
It is usually celebrated in the month of April and in the event combat scenes are recreated with firearms, grenades and armored vehicles of the time.
The activity is completed with other activities in the town such as conferences, guided visits to the spaces of the War, dances of the time and a living museum with the participation of different groups of historical recreation.
As of 2020, the recreation of the Battle of Lopera will be taken to the castle’s parade ground to bring it closer to those who wish to enjoy this wonderful act.
