Festivals and traditions


The Pego festivities begin with Porrat de Sant Antoni del Porquet on January 17th. Formerly this holiday was announced the day before with the ritual of fire. Today, there is still the ancestral tradition of blessing the animals walking three times around the hermitage. Next to this, there is a small fair of traditional candies where we can buy caramelized apples, all kinds of nuts and caramel hammers, among other things.
