The Santa Justa and Santa Rufina Feast Days

The Santa Justa and Santa Rufina Feast Days
A fiesta in honour of the patron saints of potters, which is celebrated in the street called C/ Alfarería, where the shrine dedicated to these two saints is to be found. These fiestas have been held since the inauguration in 1821, right up until the Civil War, being started up again in 1955 after the restoration of the shrine. As well as the mass and the procession other activities are also held such as the cucañas (a game in which contestants climb a greased pole using only their arms and legs in order to reach the prize at the top), the giants and the carnival figures with enormous heads, chocolate party and a ball or dance.
