June – Corpus Cristi – L’ou com Balla

Corpus Christi will be held in June with parades of giant and carnival figures with big heads. The tradition of “L’ou com balla” (means “the dancing egg”) dates back to the 16th Century. People put an empty egg-shell on the spurt of a with many flowers decorated fountain. It’s hard to believe but the ess actually dances on the water spurt, sometimes it falls down but it climbs right back up on the top of the spurt. This phenomenon can be found at all fountains in the city.
