Fiesta in honor of San Sebastián - 17 - 19 January 2014

The Cultural Bullfighting Association of Javea reinitiated the traditional "bous al carrer" in the Historic Center in 2012 after 20 years without celebrating. The festivities are part of the program of events for San Sebastian, Patron of Javea. Saint Sebastian (died c. 288) was a martyr and Christian saint, who is said to have been killed during the Roman emperor Diocletian's persecution of Christians. He is commonly depicted in art and literature tied to a post and shot with arrows. This is the most common artistic depiction of Sebastian; however, he was rescued and healed by Saint Irene of Rome before criticising the emperor and being clubbed to death. He is venerated in the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches.
