The purpose of the Mig Any (half year mark) of the Mare de Déu de Loreto Festivities Commission is to be able to carry out, in September, patron saint festivities in line with those of recent years and so that the municipality and its visitors can enjoy, once again, a celebration worthy of this centenary festival. The proposal is based on the collective and non-profit effort of each of the members of the Commission.
