17the January, Saint Anthony

On the Saint's feast day, a large service, the traditional blessing of animals and the parade are held. On the day before, there are bonfires along Inca's streets so that all citizens can participate in the “torradas”.

This day commemorates the Bubonic Plague of 1652 and how the people of calle San Sebastián did not leave the town throughout the pandemic. There is a big bonfire, a rosary singing, glosses, a sermon “About the pandemic or the plague”, '“ximbombades” and sweet wine with “paciències”, which is a Majorcan pastry.
