In 2016 Javea experienced a devastating fire and all the local rescue services including voluntary services, the Red Cross, concerned citizens and Javea Connect came to the rescue.
In recognition of their tireless and unselfish commitment to saving Javea from what could have been total disaster and for local residents to display their gratitude the event know known as “The Grand Corazon / The Big Heart of Javea” was born.
The event was the brainchild of local resident John Le Sueur who was helped by many local businesses, sponsors, classic car and motorcycle clubs and residents with the support of the Mayor. The 2016 event was a great success and well supported with over 2500 residents attending and Grand Corazon raised 8000 euros for the local voluntary services.
The success of Grand Corazon motivated everyone involved to make Grand Corazon an annual event so we hope to see you at the 2017 event, which is on September 17th.
