This historical fact serves, every September, as an ideal excuse for organizing several days of celebration in which the protagonists are the residents of Sant Antoni and Sant Agustí.

As part of the Celebrations of the Land, on the Passeig de ses Fonts, weapon workshops were held to make shields and swords so the fighters would be ready for the great war.
