Candlemas Fairs and Festivals
Perafita celebrates its Festa Major (Main Town Festival) in honour of Mare de Déu de la Candelera (Our Lady of Candlemas) and Sant Antoni (Saint Anthony the Great) by paying tribute to the world of horses.
If you visit Perafita at around the time of Candlemas, you’ll find a festival similar to the well-known Tres Tombs festival. The town celebrates the Candlemas Festival and Fair in honour of its two patron saints, Mare de Déu de la Candelera (Our Lady of Candlemas) and Sant Antoni (Saint Anthony the Great). Like the Tres Tombs festival, it features carts, horses and carriages, along with the traditional corrida, a series of horse and donkey races that attract jockeys from all over the country. You can also enjoy the Horse Fair, devoted to the world of muleteers.
