Romería de la Murta de Alzira

The first Sunday of June, the traditional pilgrimage to the valley of Murta is celebrated to visit the ruins of the Jeronimos Monastery of Santa Maria de la Murta. Many pilgrims accompany the Virgin in her transferring walk from the City Hall to the valley. At midday, an open mass is officiated and flowers are offered to the Virgin. At the end, blessed bread is delivery and, later on, giant paella is eaten amid a heavenly natural and historical setting. In the afternoon, there are various cultural events such as concerts, dances and choirs which enliven the meeting.
