Fiestas Patronales and opening hours in December
Every year during the last week of November and the first week of December, Torrevieja celebrates a wonderful festival in honour of Inmaculada Concepción who is the patron saint of the city. This is called ¨Las fiestas patronales”. The festivities are a combination of the traditional and popular events where everyone could find something interesting.
You can enjoy concerts, gastronomy and poetry competitions, processions with giants carnival figures with large heads, children´s parade and much more. Admirers of the Spanish cuisine can´t miss the big paella competition! One of the most important events for residents is on 2nd when people offer flowers to La Inmaculada Concepción (Ofrenda Floral, takes place at Plaza de la Constitución at 16.30) and after that the Nativity Scene is opened. The highlight comes on December 8th, when there is a solemn procession with the statue of the patron along the main streets followed by a massive fireworks display that rounds off the festival with a bang.
