CURIOSITIES

  •  The cross of San Christus is covered in a mist of legend that, throughout the centuries, turned the true story into a myth.
    According to the legend, the box with the simulacrum, which was washed up in a storm, was found by some fishermen in the port. However, no one managed to carry the box because it was too heavy. After many attempts, they called the Jermans of Misericordia who succeeded in lifting the precious box by saying the word "Christus" (Christ).
  • On Holy Saturday lus cucarrois is prepared, which is bread made of semolina and shaped in the form of a crown and decorated with eggs. Other traditional foods include las casarinas, made from sheets of indented pastry, with their edges turned in and stuffed with fresh cheese, egg, sugar, saffron and parsley. These are traditional presents for acquaintances and friends.
