San Antón

San Antón
This fiesta takes place in the hamlet of Losilla de Aras. It is one of the most traditional fiestas in the area and is held on the nearest weekend to the festivity of San Antón. The entrance to the hamlet is lit up by a bonfire from Friday night onwards. The villagers are responsible for seeing that it never goes out. On Saturday night there is music in the street, where the villagers walk through the streets carrying lighted lavender branches and singing the song of San Antón. This is followed by an open-air dinner prepared by local shepherds and hunters and rounded off with a dance. On Sunday there is a mass and a blessing of animals.
