La Publicata de Sant Antonio

This is the modern-day name of the "Les Fogueres” festival, the oldest festival celebrated in the region of Els Ports, dating back to the 14th century. The feast of the saint is on 17 January, but for work reasons, it has been shifted to the following Saturday and Sunday.

The Publicata begins with the collection of wood (logs, sticks and other pieces of wood) to build the bonfire that will be burnt after the depiction of the life of the saint. Other activities during the festival are the blessing of the animals, eating pastissos de carabassa, singing rondallas or medieval songs, and auctions of baked goods and farm animals.
