Pilgrimage to Sant Joan de Penyagolosa


The first references to this procession from Culla to Sant Joan de Penyagolosa are all prior to the year 1400. This type of rogation days always starts with prayers asking for rain for the crops, as well as God's grace, health and peace. Although in the past several processions were carried out during one year, it was usual to held just one on Monday and Tuesday after the Santísima Trinidad Festivities. The procession carried out on foot was maintained until 1967, then it was carried out by vehicles, until 2000, when people recovered the pilgrimage on foot, holding it on Friday and Saturday following the Santísima Trinidad Festivities, on the eve of Corpus Christi. Therefore, pilgrims go from Culla to San Juan on Friday and come back on Saturday.
