Tres Tombs, a vibrant Catalan tradition
Tres Tombs, meaning "Three Rounds," is an annual procession around January 17th, featuring beautifully adorned horses and carriages, parading through the streets. The festivities, dating back to 1826, pay homage to Saint Anthony, the patron saint of animals, believed to be able to communicate with them. The term ´Tres Tombs´ refers to the three turns around the church and are meant to invoke the protection and blessing of Saint Anthony for the animals, as well as for the well-being of the community.
