Our Lady of the Angels

The second Saturday after the Easter Sunday, Sant Mateu throws itself into the celebration of the Our Lady of the Angels festivity, patron saint of the town, commemorating the discovery of her image. The festivity starts with the cane pilgrimage from the main square to the sanctuary. From this moment on the celebration moves to the hermitage. The people’s hubbub, the devotion and the traditional mass, the distribution of the rice broth and the Ball Pla (a traditional dance) in the guest quarters’ great hall make up a very important day in the cycle of Sant Mateu’s festivities
