1. Fia-Faia in Bagà and Sant Julià de Cerdanyola
A Christmas tradition of pre-Christian origin held on the night of December 24. In 2015, along with other fire rituals from the Pyrenees, the Fia-Faia made the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list. In Bagà and Sant Julià de Cerdanyola, in the region of El Berguedà, torches called 'faies' are lit from a bonfire on the top of a hill. The faia bearers run quickly down the hill after sunset, creating a powerful spectacle. When they reach the village, they share the fire with people carrying torches, while singing 'Fia-Faia, que Nostro Senyor ha nascut a la paia' (Fia-Faia, Our Lord is born among the straw).
