August 5

Benidoleig celebrates its main festivities starting on the first Thursday of August, in honor of Santa Bárbara, the Immaculate Conception and the Blessed Blood.

The religious acts take place for three days in a row, a different saint being celebrated each day. At night, the popular festivals and “els bous al carrer”, attract people from all over the Marina Alta region who have fun mingling with the villagers, holidaymakers and foreign residents.

It is in these playful celebrations that the eminently open and festive character of the Benidolejanos is also transmitted to people from other places.
