Sant Joan in Barcelona, a magical Night!

Posted on 22 May 2007 in Barcelona, always!

In Catalonia, the first day of summer coincides with the Festival of Sant Joan. La Revetlla of Sant Joan, also known as la Nit de les Bruixes (Night of Witches) or la Nit del Foc (Night of Fire) is a popular and magical celebration that evokes ancient festivals that honored the sun.

During the course of the Nit del Foc, we celebrate parties and participate in festivals around a bonfire to commemorate the arrival of summer. The festival fills the night with light, color and sound, thanks to fireworks and firecrackers that people launch incessantly into the magical and mysterious sky. La coca de Sant Joan, a traditional Catalan pastry, can be found on every table.

About the Nit de Bruixes it is said that on the Night of Sant Joan, witches and druids strengthen and develop their magical and extraordinary powers. Then, the witches distribute their elixirs and love potions.

Don’t miss this magical night!
