Festival of rice harvest in Sant Jaume d'Enveja
150 years ago, the term of San Jaime was an inhospitable territory, of wetlands, where many factors made human settlement difficult. The transformation of the deltaic páramos did not arrive until 1860, with the construction of the Canal de la Derecha del Ebro, which made possible the cultivation and introduction of the rice plantation.
The construction of the entire irrigation network, the desiccation work and the progressive cultivation of thousands of hectares were very hard tasks carried out in a hostile environment and extended well into the 19th century. XX.
It is these origins that have determined the structure of the people, and have also forged the character of their neighbors.
San Jaime celebrates the Fiestas del Arroz with the Plantada in spring and the Sega in autumn as a tribute to all the efforts of the ancestors who worked hard to get what is now the municipality.
