FESTIVITIES OF SILLA

Fiestas Patronales de Silla

PATRON SAINT FESTIVITIES

The municipality of Silla celebrate every year these festivities to honour Santísimo Cristo de Silla. During this time the visitors get to know the customs and values of Silla through dancing and singing events, such as dança del porrots or canto de la alcachofa

Dança del porrots is an old warrior dance that is performed by 8 people parading in the streets of the town. This dance symbolizes the conflict between two sides with accusations, attempts to fight, etc. The side winning these challenges get up on the back of those who have lost the conflict to the sound of the dolçaina (pipe instrument). 

Also, there is the typical carxofa, a kind of theatrical performance from the Middle Ages commonly carried out to represent an angel. At the end of the processions, the carxofa takes place in the shape of a palm tree and a child inside of it singing with a choir and orchestra on the background. In this event several cultural, sport and youth entities collaborate for it to be a great show every year. 

Date: from mid-July to early August.
