Saint Catalina Thomàs

3 Votes
Valldemossa

When she was canonized, in 1920, Catalina Thomàs became the first Saint from Mallorca. The festival in her honor, which is held for almost a week, is the most popular in Valldemossa, the village where she was born. The central event is Carro Triomfal de la Beata, a chariots parade adorned with flowers, driven by a girl of six years, which every year is chosen by the people in the village as blessed. On the eve of the great festival, the relic of the Saint of the Church is shown and taken on a procession through the streets.

 

The festival of the blessed is also held in Villafranca de Bonany (the last weekend of July) and in Santa Margalida (the first Sunday of September).
