Passada or Passacarrers

These take place on Corpus Wednesday, at 12 midday and 8 p.m., and on Saturday at 7.30 p.m. The starting point is always the Plaça de Sant Pere (Saint Peter’s Square).

This time, it is the Tabal, the Maces, the Guites and the Old Giants who take part. The performers tour the various streets and squares of the town, performing dance movements in honour of the local authorities in front of their homes. The Passada ends with Tirabols in Plaça de Sant Joan (Saint John’s Square), which then move up the Carrer Major (High Street) to the strains of the popular melody “Ella s’ho pensa” (She’s thinking it over), which is only played in that street, repeating it over and over again, with more Tirabols in the Plaça de Sant Pere, where the procession ends in the early hours of the morning.
