Bonfires in honour of San Juan 'Nit de Foc i Aigua' - 23 June 2018

To coincide with the summer solstice, and the eve of the feast of Saint John the Baptist, celebrations are held on the beach in Moraira & in the Town Hall Square in Teulada.
Festivities include children's entertainment, preparation of the bonfire, dinner on the l'Ampolla beach, lighting of the bonfire, the traditional leaping over the embers and dancing to live music. On this same magical night folklore dictates that it is the most propitious time to cleanse the body and spirit by bathing in the sea at midnight, and to reveal the zealously guarded secrets of traditional remedies.
