Setmana del Mar, or Week of the Sea, is a celebration of the nautical and fishing history of Vilanova, and is also in honour of St. Peter – patron saint of fishermen. As with many cities, along this coastline Vilanova started life as a fishing village and the people here are very proud of their seafaring traditions. Held every June the area in and around the port comes to life with stall, entertainment and various events pertaining to the sea. There are demonstrations of how the fishing industry was in the past and there are lots of boats involved as you would imagine.
