|Falces, Navarre. The Saviour in Falces|
The Saviour in Falces
From Thursday 9 November to Sunday 12 November, the town of Falces on the banks of the Arga will organise numerous activities to celebrate the feast of The Saviour, its patron saint.
The festivities will begin with the rocket launched at noon from the Basilica of the Saviour of the World, located on the town’s highest point, followed by a mass in honour of the town’s patron saint. After this, there will be street music with dulzaina players and comparsas (similar to krewes). A procession of giants and 'big-heads' will take place .
The feasts provide a good opportunity to taste some of the best samples of Navarrese cuisine. Pochas (fresh white beans) will be served on at the Plaza de los Fueros and there will be a tasting of migas (breadcrumbs sautéed with garlic) from Falces.
Falces is a town in Navarre’s Ribera Region, located between Tudela and Tafalla, somewhat closer to the latter. This is the perfect occasion to visit the medieval town of Olite, only twenty minutes away. You can enjoy a walk along the narrow streets of Olite and admire its stone mansions with coats of arms and, of course, its famous medieval castle, the best example of civil gothic architecture in Navarre.
