FESTIVITY OF THE ‘SANTÍSIMA SANGRE’
The day of the "Santísima Sangre" is always celebrated on the 2nd Wednesday after San Pedro. The day of the "Santísima Sangre" is celebrated with a Mass ceremony with the sharing out of ‘blessed' bread and a procession in the evening. The "Bous a la Mar", stand out, declared as being of National Tourist Interest. The spectacle is celebrated in a mobile bullring placed in the port. There are two daily passes, one in the morning, which is free, and another in the evening. The parade of ‘floats' is also important, which will, this year will take place on Saturday, the 12th of July. In it participate all the parade commissions, ‘falleres'. It is necessary to emphasise that the floats are made by members of the commissions. It is a parade of great colour and visual impact. Also, during this week there are concerts, open-air dances, acts for children, sports contests and, to finish the fiestas, a firework display over the northern breakwater.
