On the first Sunday after Easter, Muro honours Sant Francesc de Paula. The festival takes place with great splendor since 1714. However, the origin of the festival stretches farther back in time.

It has the characteristic charm of this kind of traditional festivals with both civic and religious events, which are lively and sumptuous. The events include the “solemnes completes” and the high mass in a church packed to the brim, the traditional festival in carrer de Santa Anna (decorated with branches) and the tradition of grabbing the rabbit from the top of a long, smooth, greasy pole, bright and colourful fireworks to put an end to the night, “jotes” and “boleros” dance by Pinyol Vermell in the shade of the church, concerts by the band, handicraft, machinery, agriculture, industry and livestock shows. One of the most important pig markets of the island was held in carrer del Pare Alzina.
