San Antón is the patron saint of Monachil. It is celebrated on January 17. The town hall of Monachil makes, free of charge, the «Olla de San Antón» (rice, dried beans, chickpeas, chickpeas, mask, ears, pig’s hands, blood sausage, bacon, legs, backbone bones, fennel, chard, etc.), a coveted traditional dish that hundreds of people come to taste in our town.

In addition, throughout the month the «Olla» is served in most of the restaurants in the municipality. You cannot miss it.

Traditionally, this dish, composed of caloric foods, was cooked to protect from the low temperatures of the municipality. In its origins it was made with the contributions generously offered by the inhabitants of the town.
