JULY - PORRAT DE LA SANG

On the second Wednesday of this month, the Blood Day porrat is held in the Clot de la Font. A porrat is a fair that is held on different festivities, usually next to a church or hermitage. One of the main activities is the sale of typical products and sweets. Nowadays, the porrat has incorporated various cultural and recreational activities for the amusement of young and old.

It takes place in the afternoon, and in addition, during the evening we can enjoy the performance of a Valencian group that is included, and therefore, opens the International Festival Sete Sóis Sete Luas.

This porrat has been celebrated since 1860 and the origin is that in the Muslim period a summer market took place in the Muslim village of Ombria where they sold gastronomic products and other things.

Throughout the week, various activities are organised by the Asociación de Festeros del Santísimo Cristo de la Sangre (Association of Festeros del Santísimo Cristo de la Sangre).
