THE GUARDIAN OF ANIMALS

San Antonio

With the new year having just begun, the 17th of January is celebrated in the old town of Oropesa del Mar on the day of San Antonio Abad, patron saint of animals and popularly known as "El Grande".

In honour of the saint, numerous acts and events are organised that bring together the whole town of Oropesa. These include the popular equestrian exhibitions, the tasting of "coqueta", one of the most typical dishes of the municipality consisting of bread dough seasoned with tomato, vegetables and tuna among other ingredients, or the "cremà" of the bonfire of the Town Hall.

TO TRAVEL TO A TIME OF PIRATES AND CORSAIRS

Patron saint festivities of the Virgin of Patience

The first Sunday in October is the big day in Oropesa, the day of the Virgen de la Paciencia. During these festivities, which have been celebrated since the end of September, the legend that led to the destruction of the image of the patron saint in 1619 when it was attacked by Barbary pirates and the whole town was reduced to pieces is remembered.

The Virgin was then taken to Valencia for restoration and it took three centuries for her to return to Oropesa, as it was not until 1964 that the people of Oropesa were able to recover their patron saint. Music, gunpowder and popular crafts come together for a few days of authentic fervour in the municipality.

A TRIBUTE TO ALL WHO VISIT OROPESA

Sea Festival and Tourist Day

This celebration is organised every year on 15 August in honour of the tourists, because they are an essential part of this municipality that lives facing the sea and that in summer reaches its peak.

What does it consist of? At nightfall, the beach of La Conchase fills with noise and light with a first class pyrotechnic spectacle with land and water fireworks as a tribute to all those who visit Oropesa. A real privilege!
