Nit del Cremat (Night of Cremat)
The Nit del Cremat (Night of Cremat) takes place on the closest Friday to Santa Tecla Fair. It consists of dancing “sardanes” in Plaça de la Coma and, during a break, drinking “cremat” (an alcohòlic drink made of rum, coffee and spices).
Most years, there is an specific “sardana” performed called El foc de Castelló composed by Antoni Agramunt.
La Nit del Cremat (Night of Cremat) is a historic activity of the association Amics de la Sardana. It was born in order to revive the fair of Santa Tecla, which had been not celebrated for many years. As one of the symbols of Santa Tecla was the fire, the association tried to find an event containing this element. This is where the Nit dels Cremat (Night of Cremat) came from.
