    I thought there was only three kings in the "coming of the Kings". In Javea anyway, maybe it depends on the locality?

    The procession is to return the local saint, Santa Eulalia, to her mountain church for the rest of the year. She is brought down for the Christmas period on 8th December and goes back the day after Three Kings Day.
