Xàbia Històrica - Holiday Festivities - Jesus of Nazarene Festivities

About the Fiesta
Jesus of Nazarene Festivities: Bullrunning in Placa del Convent, Flower crosses contest, Pujada: procession to the Ermita del Calvario
, etc.

Although St. Sebastian is the Patron Saint of Javea / Xàbia, the Festivities in honour of "Jesús Nazareno" have the strongest popular support and devotion among Xàbia's citizens.

These festivities honour Jesús Nazareno and his image, which was awarded the title of "perpetual mayor" for once saving the population from plague and illness. The programme includes "bous al carrer", the popular (and controversial) bull-running event, the deafening "mascletà" and the traditional competition for decorated flower crosses which spring up around the old town.

 

La Pujada: Literally meaning "the ascent", the image of Jesús Nazareno is carried back to the blue-domed Ermita del Calvario from the church of San Bartolomé after which a spectacular firework display brings the fiesta of Jesús Nazareno to a close.

On the 2nd of May, it is traditional to visit the streets of the Historical City Centre to look at the colourful "Cruces de Mayo", crosses made out of flowers by the neighbours which win local prizes based on their preparation, originality and beauty.
