Trinitarian Feasts Berber born in 1996 on the initiative of José Miguel Rodríguez, historian and researcher at the Villa of Torre-Pacheco.

Recall the dreaded acts Berber incursions raiding the coasts of the Mar Menor and the Campo de Cartagena during the XV, XVI and XVII and impeded the settlement of this area.

These attacks created the need to lift watchtowers that could provide shelter, one in Torre-Pacheco.

These parties, which met for 16 years, are a benchmark for our people.

We knew of the existence of our people Trinitarian monks (from 1620 until the first third of the nineteenth century), the date on which the property Confiscation wiped largest religious order (dedicated to the redemption of captives) had in the Kingdom of Murcia, which became extension of 356 hectares and was located in Torre-Pacheco.

These monks lived a house called "The Monastic" and was attached to the old parish church, plus seven other houses had here, one dedicated to be inn and purchase because Torre-Pacheco a crossroads.

We also knew of the raids, or rides, featuring the Barbary pirates, who settled in North Africa landed on our shores of the Mar Menor, Cartagena plagued the field in order to get captive by those who later would ask a good rescue .

This will set up a business that would last several centuries, making cities like Algiers or Tangier, authentic people trade capital.

The attacks of the Berber hindered and delayed the folding of these fields, becoming essential building towers next to the farms or Strong House of the few families whose incomes allowed them lifting such defensive buildings, one of these houses with Torre was the Pero Pacheco.

The Lordship of Hoyamorena was the only one who like all (by royal grant), existed throughout the Campo de Cartagena, and an inventory of 1623 we know that the hacienda was: "A main house with its tower and church, an orchard and one Zeña ...., 80 tahullas vineyard, a wine cellar containing 500 pounds of jars and 100 pounds in boots.

The farmers living across eight houses, it is true, old and battered.

The land is devoted mainly to the cultivation of cereal .... and to style them staff has six pairs of oxen and a wagon with two mules ".

We unite as these two historical data and thus were created in Torre-Pacheco early historical parties in the field of Cartagena.
