Sant Joan

23/6/2016 - 24/6/2016

The 24th of June is the Sant Joan/Sant Juan public holiday in Catalonia/Spain, which celebrates midsummer's day. And the night of the 23rd is marked by a huge party with a frightening mix of pyrotechnics, sangria and cervezas. (Safe to say that the the Barcelona burns unit will be busy! Do be wary of rogue fireworks if you're out and about). The main action takes place along the city's beaches: starting with Barceloneta as the busiest, make your way north for increasingly civilised sands.
