Within the festival, children orphaned represent the "Miracles" in the thirteen Altars are being lifted in the various neighbourhoods emblematic of the city provided by the image of the pattern.
The Altar or Cadafal oldest of them dating back to 1561 are mounted and installed each year Pouet next to St. Vincent.

Fiesta de San Vicente de Ferrer Tourist Office
A week after Easter, the people of the Autonomous Region of Valencia pay homage to their patron saint, San Vicente de Ferrer. In the centre of Valencia itself, children perform plays depicting his miracles.
San Vicente was born in Valencia in 1350 and died in Vannes in 1419. He was a theologian and preacher, and also an important political figure. Eventually he became a missionary, travelling around Europe, preaching several times a day to crowds of 10,000, working miracles, frequently fasting and sleeping on the floor.
On the saint's feast day, it is customary to visit his old home, now converted into a chapel. Here children drink from the Pouet de Sant Vicent in order that they "begin to speak at an early age, do not suffer from tonsilitis, do not commit perjury and should never be blasphemous".

At the same time a major agricultural fair takes place, attracting people from all over the province, and there is an archery and a horse-pulling competition. This traditional competition is designed to test the horses’ strength, with a series of trials where horses must drag their own equivalent bodyweight against the clock. Another important act during the fiesta is the saint’s procession. The typical festive dish of the town is “empedrao”, a stew with meat, rice and beans.
