SAN BLAS POTRÍES IN 3 February |
The fiesta San Blas in Potríes is a religious festival that originated in the seventeenth century, coinciding with the saving of the town after the expulsion of the Moors in 1609, when the Borja family ruled.
The custom is to go to the Church of St. John to move the relic of the saint which is preserved in it, eat the bread blessed, sing the joys and light a candle at the altar of the saint. This would comply with the ritual of protection to the saint who it is said can cure the ills of the throat. PROGRAMMING
