Santa Cecilia

In common with many towns in Spain, Bigastro will be paying homage to the patron saint of musicians this weekend.

On Friday at 7:30 pm the statue of Santa Cecilia will be taken from the church to the Auditorium. Then on Saturday, there will be a concert to honour her in the Auditorium Francisco Grau at 8pm. This is a very popular event so it is best to be there early to grab yourself a seat.

On Sunday at midday, solemn mass will be given to honour the saint followed by a floral offering  and a parade around the streets of the town at 1pm to return Santa Cecilia from the Auditorium back to the church.

PS I will be  at all three with my camera of course.
