San Fulgencio Fiestas

Print | Send to a friend

By Staff Reporter / 2007-01-15 14:48:51

San Fulgencio is this week celebrating its fiestas in honour of its patron saint of the same name, and its co-patron, San Antonio Abad. They are fiestas that have a strong religious touch, with processions on 16th and 17th January to honour the saints and the blessings of animals and the bread on San Antón.
But there are also popular and traditional customs of these fiestas that are not so religious, such as the ‘recogida de la gallina’ (the collecting of the chicken) on 16th January, in which members of the local authorities run through the town accompanied by a marching band and those that want to offer them an animal.
The fiestas finish on Saturday 20th January with the traditional Feast of the Brotherhood, where all the townsfolk meet up in the El Oasis parish, to share a meal.
