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.

The day of San Vicente Ferrer, the Monday after Easter Monday, the traditional “Fireta i Porrat de Sant Vicent” is celebrated, a festival dedicated to the most universal saint of all Valencians, where neighbors and visitors, adults and children share and enjoy numerous performances and workshops, ending with the tradition of eating the “Mona”, a typical sweet that enjoys great prestige in the Levantine pastry.

With this festival it is about returning the spirit of the closing of the Easter celebrations in the Marina Alta, which since time immemorial has had in the Cueva de las Calaveras its stage par excellence.
