Well, “San Vicente Ferrer” was a philosopher and a Dominican preacher, who was also known as “Sant Vicent el del ditet” because it’s said that he used to make miracles using his index finger! He is now the patron saint of Valencia and so a holiday is taken in remembrance of him.
He was born on January 22nd, 1350 in Valencia and dedicated his life to traveling on his donkey all over Spain and other European cities, spreading his thoughts on religion and ‘miraculous acts’ everywhere he went. On 1410 he founded the first registered orphanage in the world right here in Valencia, before he died in Britanny in 1419.
Perhaps this celebration is not as well-known as others, but the fact that it is in honor of the patron saint of the city makes it a special celebration for Valencians!
