Monacàlia, the Abbot’s Fair
The focus in Navarcles is on the Monastery of Sant Benet de Bages, as it was centuries ago, with Monacàlia, the Abbott's Festival.
The Monastery of Sant Benet de Bages was responsible for appointing the rector and the mayor of Navarcles, for giving work to its locals and for providing them with culture. It was also responsible for collecting taxes and tithes. The abbot was the spiritual and feudal lord of the town. To commemorate this close bond, every year Navarcles holds Monacàlia, the Abbot’s Fair. It dates back to the 10th century and gives visitors the chance to discover the importance of monastic life in this part of the Bages region.
