Festivity in Honour of the Virgen del Rebollet

The festivities in honour of the Virgen del Rebollet, Patron Saint of the city, begin with a peregrination, in which hundreds of pilgrims take part, accompanied with a cane from which they hang a pumpkin. The procession moves the image of the Virgin, a Romanesque sculpture from the XII century, considered to be the most ancient Marian representation of the Valencian Community, from the Plaza de Santa María up to the Castle. There is a Mass ceremony celebrated in honour of the Patron Saint. Later, at lunchtime, the romeros distribute wine and fruits amongst the attendees.
