Festivities of San Antonio in Fanzara.

San Antonio

It is held on January 17th in honour of San Antonio Abad, the patron saint of animals. The party begins with the animal blessing and a horse race that goes around the different bonfires that are lit in some areas of the town. This race, called “matxà”, is headed by a jockey who carries the standard of the saint. At the end of the race, a wine “porrat” and nuts are given out, along with the typical blessed rolls.
