Bonfires, beach parties and wishes merge with the intense smell of burning wood and discarded objects. These are the ingredients that make the magical night of 23 June so special. The night before the day of San Juan is celebrated most intensely in the municipalities of Puerto de la Cruz, Punta del Hidalgo and Guía de Isora. The bonfires are lit as night sets in to welcome the summer solstice. This symbolic scene represents the act of leaving the bad behind and welcoming the new and the good with open arms.
Where: Puerto de la Cruz, Punta del Hidalgo and Guía de Isora.
When: 23 June.
