Calafell Festival of San Anthony Abad and Three Turns
Calafell Festival of San Anthony Abad and Three Turns-Festa dels Tres Tombs de Sant Antoni Abat a Calafell
Festival Date: 25-01-2015
Like every year, arriving in Calafell is traditional Tres Tombs (Three Turns) as part of the festival of San Antonio Abad (Saint Anthony Abad patron saint of animals).
This festival is the expression of the drive to recall the tradition and ancestral roots, of how things used to be, not so long ago. The celebration begins, as usual, with the concentration of vehicles, then the breakfast takes place, then the blessing of the animals and then the traditional route of the Tres Tombs (Three Turns). This tradition is explained more fully in this feature here.
