San Juan Festivity
Benafigos holds these festivities of June 24th in honour of Patron Saint San Juan Bautista on the closest Sunday to that day. Previously, on the Saturday afternoon, the cherry bouquets that will decorate the platform of the Saint are prepared. On Saturday, the festivity commences with the arrival of the dulzaina musician and the “despertà” (wake up call). Then, he takes the decorated platform with the saint from the town hall to the church, and a mass is given. After having lunch, following the dulzaina music, the flat dance is performed in the square and, in the afternoon, a procession through the main streets of the town is held, after the prayers.
