Saints Day of Sant Salvador 

August 6th

August 6th is the Saints Day of Sant Salvador, which as it is summer, is an excuse for Festa Majors around Catalonia.

The official Saints Day of Sant Salvador is March 18th and commemorates the Franciscan miracleworker Sant Salvador d'Horta, who was beatified in 1606 and only canonised in 1938.

However, the majority of Christians celebrate Transfiguration of Jesus, in honour of Crist Salvador or Christ the Saviour, on August 6th.
