Today San Antonio Abad, patron saint of animals, is celebrated. To celebrate this anniversary, the seaside neighborhood of Duanes de la Mar hosts the blessing of animals on the promenade of the Grava beach.

Organized by Penya la Burrera, the event began after the mass celebrated in the Church of Our Lady of Loreto, in which the bread was also blessed and the images of Sant Antoni were handed over.

The blessing of the animals has had the participation of dozens of neighbors and their pets. In it, the presence of Khalan and Kosmo, the two police dogs of Xàbia, should be highlighted.

    Thank you for your comment, I also like these traditional and very simple parties. They are celebrated with joy and it is a nice way to enjoy with pets or work animals, which well deserve it.
