Fiestas de septiembre

Fiestas de septiembre

They are held in honor of the Virgen del Castillo, who is carried in shoulders from the chapel to the church of San Juan Bautista, where it remains until the end of the celebration. It starts with the proclamation and the "mojete" night, a typical dish of Chiva, when people gather to taste it. Throughout the festivities, many events such as paella competitions, themed balls, concerts, costumes, children's games, parades, etc. are scheduled. On day 8, the traditional Mass, followed by a procession, takes place. On the eve, an emotional offering of flowers takes place and finally the Virgin is taken back to her hermitage. This event ends with fireworks.
