Pi de Centelles Festival

Festa del pi de Centelles
30/12/2019 Centelles

Go out to look for the most beautiful pine tree in the region, decorate it and offer it to Santa Coloma. Welcome to the Centelles Pine Tree Festival!

A straight trunk and thick round branches are the characteristics the pine tree of the Centelles Pine Tree Festival should have. It is cut down by axes, tied together with rope to prevent it from falling and being damaged and is carried upright to the church on an ox-drawn cart to the sound of blunderbusses. Decorated with apples and wafers, it is taken into the church and tied facing downwards and then raised to the level of Santa Coloma. A surprising kind of centenary celebration!

The Fia-Faia Festival

Festa de la Fia-faia a Bagà

"Fia-Faia nostro senyor ha nascut a la paia" (Fia-Faia our Lord was born in the manger). The residents of Bagà and of Sant Julià de Cerdanyola chant this every Christmas Eve.

Bonfires are not only built to celebrate Sant Joan's Eve. In Bagà and Sant Julià de Cerdanyola they burn the so-called faies at the beginning of winter. They do so on Christmas Eve when the faies that have been bought down from the mountain are burnt in the centre of the towns to celebrate the birth of Jesus. If you spend Christmas in the Berguedà region, we highly recommend you visit it. You can participate in an ancient celebration in which fire plays the star role!
