San Antonio


On January 17, San Antonio is celebrated, a festivity in which bonfires abound in the streets, where the popular "Torrada" is made, a happy gathering of neighbors around the bonfires, to roast the typical products of the land and the sea; artichokes, "petxines", chops, etc. At dusk, in the Plaza de la Iglesia, the "Dimoni", a figure with the image of the devil, is burnt to scare away the evil spirits.

The parade and blessing of the animals and the distribution of thousands of "Coques", delicious sweet peeling, complete the party. During these days a major fair of agricultural machinery is held.
