The Week of St John of the Cross

Since 1977 the Discalced Carmelites community organises a feast in honour of St John of the Cross in Úbeda. Supported by the local city council and the “Hospital de Santiago”, it is celebrated every year during the second week of November.

The first day, the official opening ceremony includes a presentation of the contents and activities for the week, and a music and artistic show about the saint’s work and poetry.

The rest of the days, a series of conferences hold by the major national and international specialists on St John of the Cross take place. And in the end there is a closing Eucharist celebration in Saint Michael’s church.
