Festival of Saint Anthony Sant Carles de la Rapita-Festa de Sant Antoni

Festival Date: 17-01-2015

This is a traditional festival that focuses around the blessing of the animals. It can be traced back many centuries, in the days where we needed animals to work the land. The saint is the patron saint of all animals, and these days people will bring horses, donkeys, ponies, and even their pets. The Tres Tombs is often part of it, and this translates into the Three Turns, as the people to the same route three times with their animals, as part of the ritual.

In Sant Carles there is also traditional shawl dancing, and hot chocolate for the people.
