The Festivities of the Virgin of Yecla were born in 1642 as a thank you to Our Lady of the Conception, venerated in the Hermitage of the Castle, on the occasion of the fortunate return to the Villa de Yecla of the sixty-one Yeclanos led by Martín Soriano Zaplana, quartered in Vinaroz for the War in Catalonia.
