Festivities in honour of San Roque

Tradition says that it is necessary to stay up all night on the 15th of August in order to pay tribute to the Saint. To make the wake more pleasant, the organisers of the celebrations program performances and playful events. The festivity is completed with a pilgrimage to the Hermitage of San Roque, approximately five kilometres from the municipality. Once in the temple, the devout assist a Mass held in honour of the Saint.
