Highlights / General details
In Catalonia, the arrival of summer coincides with the celebration of traditional popular open-air festivals. So, leave the city behind you and see a different side of Catalonia on an evening trip from Barcelona to a traditional ‘correfoc’ (fire-running) festival in a local village!
Watch villagers dressed as devils and dancing to the sound of the drums and of traditional music and turning the village into a fiery cauldron of light and fireworks. The ‘Fire-running’ is a show of fire that waits until the sun is down to perform in an amazing fire parade. It all represents the fight of the Good against the Evil.
The experienced native guide shows the outfits and special clothes “devils” wear during their performance, how they light their sparklers and firecrackers, and explains secrets and details behind this centenary and unique tradition; which is strongly connected to the history of the town.
You can take it all in from the side lines or get involved the same way a local does and surrounded by locals. It is a unique, real and unforgettable experience! Dance with the devils between the crowds or just watch the spectacle of fire.
Choose the day that best fits your plans and join us in this spectacle of feeling and tradition. Each festivity has its own particular name that describes part of the history of the Town. Remember this is a very important event for Catalans, so get ready to be part of the community!
