Easter in Montblanc is considered one of the oldest in the province. Already in 1601 there is evidence of the existence of the Congregation of the Purest Blood, still organizing the events of Holy Week in Montblanc. Its historic headquarters are the old hospital church of Sant Marçal, where the steps and images that appear in the procession of Good Friday are kept throughout the year. These steps are almost all of the twentieth century, as the previous ones were destroyed.
The soldiers (Roman soldiers) who guard the Christ are one of the most spectacular components of the celebration, both in their costumes and the way they march through the streets and squares of the town.
According to Joan Amades in the Catalan Costumari, the events of the Catalan version of the legend of Sant Jordi are located in the town of Montblanc in Conca de Barberà. That is why the medieval architectural ensemble of the capital of Conca de Barberà hosts the Medieval Week of Montblanc around the day of Sant Jordi. The party is made up of a series of events that tell the famous legend starring the knight, the princess, the rose and the dragon while offering a lot of activities of medieval setting.
The program is held on two weekends and is divided into two parts: one focuses on staging certain aspects of the legend of Sant Jordi, and the other holds medieval recreations: banquets, jousting, dances, troubadours ... It is completed with a permanent medieval market through the streets of the center of the town, samples of ancient trades, the recreation of a military camp and a space dedicated to children. There is also a wine and cavas market where they sell products of the appellation of origin Conca de Barberà.
