correfoc – night of the devils.

 

Once a year the catalan people are going nuts. Ok, probably not only once a year, but this event is probably the most spectacular. The “correfoc”  (= fire-runs) is part of the festa major, a party where the towns and villages are celebrating themselves. It’s a fight good against evil, a riotous fiesta of sparklers, firecrackers, and roman candles right in the middle of the spectators. Security fanatics probably wouldn’t be very amused but it’s absolutely worth a visit.

These pictures i took at the spectacle in Castelló d’Empúries last night.
