San Blas

Patron Saint of the mozos (men) and the formerly known as “quintos” (young men who would be the military replacement of the corresponding year).

At night, right as February 3rd begins, the quintos, mozos and mozas in town cut a holm oak. After lunch, with sunlight, the gorses needed to burn the holm oak are cut.

In the evening, the typical “arrosega” takes place. This consists in dragging this holm oak around the streets and then planting it in the right place. The gorses are placed in its base and they are lighted at night.

After midnight, there is a popular dance whose benefits go to the quintos.
