Festivity in Honour of the Santísimo Cristo de San Roque

The most representative customs and traditions in Oliva take over the streets during the festivities of San Roque, which have been celebrated since the XVII century. The proclamation, in which all the festeros take part dressed in the traditional costume, announces the beginning of the festive day. The religious acts consist of the prayer of the novena in the chapel of Christ, completed by a solemn procession. Theatrical representations, sporting competitions of Valencian ball and fancy dress cavalcades are just some of the different and most playful acts.
