Week of the Sea and the Feasts of Sant Pere (Saint Peter)
Only the oldest people know what it is like living close to the sea. Vilanova i la Geltrú recalls the maritime traditions in the Week of the Sea.
Attend a live fish auction, get to know the fishing boats, enjoy one of the most colourful and lively maritime processions and, between event and event, try out the traditional sailor's "rations". The Vilanova i la Geltrú Week of the Sea is just that, an ode to maritime life. An event that coincides with the centenary festival to pay homage to Sant Pere, the patron saint of fishermen, which is also celebrated the night before with fireworks and coca or traditional sponge cake.
