The salpàs was a religious ceremony that used to be held by Easter. The rector went from house to house of the parish to bless and preserve family homes, animals, fields and the house of any misfortune (illness, poor harvests, spirits).
For the ceremony It was used blessed salt and water, with a paste that was spread on the doors, windows and pictures of the house. It was customary to give the excess salt and water to animals and children to protect them against diseases.
For the Palm Sunday there was also the tradition in some houses of making palm crosses with the blessed leaves that were put on the doors and windows to protect themselves against the devil.
