Do you know why the people of Manresa were able to build the irrigation channel? The answer can be found in the legend of the Light Festival.
Legend has it that on the 21st of February 1345, a strange light was seen coming from Montserrat which went into the Church of the Carme and the bells began to ring. Thanks to this miracle, the people of Manresa were able to build the irrigation channel and alleviate the devastating effects of the drought. Since then, Manresa has commemorated this miracle with the Light Festival.
