Festes al Carrer: Virgen de Lledó y Lope de Vega

The Festes al Carrer are documented as far back as the beginning of the 20th century. Most of the festivities were lost with the arrival of the Civil War and were not recovered until the 60s. From this moment on, the saints yet again ceased to come out onto the streets and it was between the years 1988 and 1991 that the majority of fiestas, that are nowadays celebrated, were finally recovered. The festive activities take place throughout the whole of a weekend. It is on the Saturday that most of the ludic events take place. On the Sunday homage is paid to the Saint and various different religious acts are celebrated; the procession of the Saint to the corresponding church, mass and the transference of the Saint in procession to the calvary house. In late afternoon there is the return procession in which the Saint is taken from the outgoing calvary house to the incoming calvary house.
