DIA de de SANT CARLES @ SANT CARLES DE PERALTA
from 09.00 hrs
Every 4th November, the village of Sant Carles de Peralta celebrates its annual Saint Patron’s Day with festivities held every year in honor of St Charles, the patron saint of the village of Sant Carles de Peralta with Holy Mass, Market and lots of cultural & traditional festivities for the whole family.
On that day, as custom dictates, the image of the saint is taken out in solemn procession, the traditional folkdance (ball pagès) is performed in his honor and a sampling of local gastronomy is offered round. At night, an open-air concert, pyrotechnics take centre stage with a correfoc, in which a troupe of devils, demons and assorted imps rush the streets wielding flares and other flaming equipment.
But the village festival is not limited to the big day only. The celebrations span the whole month, during which time numerous open air concerts are organized as well as gastronomic events, exhibitions, contests and sports competitions.
