About San Anton:

San Anton, is a saint celebrated in many villages of Andalucia. Anthony the Great, whose real name was Antonio Abad, was born in Egypt and is recognised as the patron saint of animals because of his actions and his love for nature throughout his life.

For this year 2023: the villagers will be able, as usual, to come at the end of the mass to have their animals blessed (dog, cat, donkey, horses,…).

The dates of the Fiesta of San Anton

This celebration will take place on 5 February 2023.
