Check out Culla’s festival calendar and start planning a getaway that is a little bit different.

Culla’s festivals are excellent opportunities to visit this small part of L’Alt Maestrat in the province of Castellón which is defined by the passing of the Knights Templar. The medieval streets of the village host events around the year in a flurry of tradition and celebration. Get out your diary and plan a trip to enjoy them like a local.

Sant Pere Màrtir and Sant Antoni Abad are celebrated with traditional events in April, unlike other destinations where the festival is held in January. You can expect albaes sung on the streets at night, processions and horse riders making their way around the historic centre to receive the blessing of the animals. There is also an auction and the corregudes de gall.

Culla’s festival calendar continues on Easter Monday with the Sant Cristòfol Pilgrimage. Pilgrims walk to the chapel in a procession that includes children’s dance performances, the blessing of the vehicles and the sharing of prima. After this, there are two stand-out dates for your diary: the rogation day to Sant Joan de Penyagolosa, a walk; and Corpus Christi, a traditional festivity. The latter is a spectacular affair in Culla, giving you a unique opportunity to experience the local customs with traditional clothing, floral altars and much more.

In August, Culla’s festivals see fun street parties and community dinners. And the calendar comes to a close with Sant Miquel in September, which is celebrated with more street parties. So how about it? Fancy coming to experience Culla’s festivals?
