Benicarlo St. Anthony Abad

Festival Date: 17-01-2016

The tradition of St. Anthony Abad and the blessing of the animals is celebrated in many towns. In Benicarlo, there are campfires in the streets, and some of the typical products are roasted, such as chops and artichokes.

Around dusk there is the burning of the Dimoni, in the Church Square to ward off evil spirits, and then the festival parade and the blessing of the animals. A special local cake is given to the people.

Benicarlo has its own marina and some interesting parts to the town. The entrance to the town is not that attractive, but don’t let that worry you, as it is a normal working seaside town wiht some attractive parts. Check it out in our Benicarlo Spain travel guide.
