SAN VICENTE FERRER
Easter week in Valencia is extended with the festivals of San Vicente Ferrer, the Patron Saint of the Valencian Community. During the festival, children re-enact the miracles of San Vicente on alters/stages erected in the thirteen neighbourhood areas of the city. These performances take place under the ever-watchful eye of the Saint whose image overlooks each of the platforms. You can enjoy some of these performances in the old city of Valencia, in Plaza Tossal, Plaza del Carmen, and opposite Lonja monument.
